Hope you enjoy the review of my book and thanks to all of you who have gone to Amazon and completed a review of the book….So far it is doing well.

Let’s all hope this economic mess gets on the right road soon….Lee

Your Biggest Opportunity
I believe that your biggest opportunity is still in making sure that every single employee understands your expectation for his or her role (job).   The biggest opportunity is at the front line where the employee interacts with your customers.
