Marketing: 77 Instant-Action Ideas to Boost Sales, Maximize Profits, and Crush Your Competition.

The two discuss finding opportunities to reinforce your expectations and message, dealing with the smelly guy 3 cubicles over and what to do when an employee get defensive over potential problems. Employee performance conversations don’t have to be painful nor confrontational.
