Becoming a Benevolent Dictator

Beating the competition is never easy. Neither is running the gauntlet of a business start-up, which not only is a major challenge but can often prove fatal. Success for both depends on being a benevolent dictator.

In this Soundview Live webinar, Becoming a Benevolent Dictator, Michael Feuer and Dustin Klein lay out the philosophy that every business or idea has a life cycle that encompasses four critical phases: Idea Development, Build Out, Continuous Improvement and Cash Out.

This methodology is spelled out through dozens of specific leadership lessons, which provide examples and practical applications designed to help everyone, from students of business and aspiring entrepreneurs to executives, take any concept effectively and rapidly from mind to market.

The audio recording, video recording, and slides will be available to listen to or download from your Online Library immediately after check-out.
