I can answer any question that has to do with working relationships, management skills (or lack there of), conflict, and leadership. I primarily work with troubled teams, groups with poor management, or general dysfunction for over twenty-five years. I am also an author of six management books, a graduate professor at the University of Denver, and a radio talk show host on workplace issues. Go to www.leadingfromwithin.net for more information.
Again, twenty-five years of experience in resolving employee/management workplace issues.
