Having A Leadership Playbook

Ep. 152 – We’ve all been there: feeling like we’re just repeating the same mistakes or not retaining the things we have heard.

But what if you took a lesson from those experiences, rather than letting them slip away?
On this episode of The Manager Track podcast, I’ll show how creating and using your very own leadership playbook is the key to advancing in your career! Discover when and why it’s useful as well as exactly how having one can help propel you forward on an upward trajectory.
