So much has changed over the last few months because of the global pandemic causing massive upheaval in many areas of business, including in leadership roles, and that’s why I’m so excited to have Peter Montoya here with me today. He is a gifted speaker, best-selling author, and successful entrepreneur, and he’s sharing his expertise with us on leadership, team culture, and the importance of community.

Listen in as we dive deep into what it means to be a leader today, especially during times of uncertainty, as well as how to show up consistently for your team and your business.
