Episode #59 Solve The Problem
100% of us are problem spotters, but very few of us are problem solvers. Listen in this week as Dr. Michael Brown and Ryan Snow describe the practical steps to not only spot problems but how to solve them.
By pointing out problems, by actually engaging in this problem-solving process, it comes from a deep place, not of cynicism, but of compassion and care.Dr. Michael Brown
