Are you a “Visionary” who sees the world from 10,000 feet, eyes on the future? Are you an “Operator” who loves to break down barriers and get stuff done?

According to our guest, Les McKeown, each of these types are essential to building and scaling a successful business, but each is particularly suited to a different stage of a company’s lifecycle. Getting the right balance and working to move your business through its growth stages is key to building Predictable Success.
