Great Teams. podcast, Dr. Mike Patterson introduces himself, describes the purpose of the podcast, and sets the stage for all the episodes that will follow. The big idea is that this is a place where we will have honest and even difficult conversations about what it takes to be a leader that balances people and performance while building thriving teams that achieve extraordinary results. Since better business results often boil down to better relationships, each future episode will emphasize how people can more effectively relate to each other and work better together.
