Val Ries has an MBA from the University of Phoenix and is the founder of Executive Muse, a company dedicated to leadership development. With clients from small businesses to Fortune 500 companies, she has been applauded for her ability to build rapport, make substantive change, and get to the root of company challenges. A highly sought-after leadership trainer, her expertise is based on having previously held a variety of upper-level management positions. Her specialization is offering insight on turning around struggling teams, uplifting low morale, and making sure productivity is enhanced. 

She offers the book as a “playbook” for building teams others want to be on – teams that can attract the best talent, get top-producing results, and grow individual contributors into future leaders. Ries uses many real-life examples to provide insights about:  

  • Inspiring oneself and others to be the best version of themselves 
  • Understanding what motivates a team to be productive, engaged, and loyal 
  • Leading a team toward progressive fulfilment of goals and vision 
  • Knowing exactly who to hire and when to fire 
  • Redirecting difficult conversations with confidence and ease.
