Business is a funny thing. One moment its exhilarating, exciting and challenging. The next moment its crushing, demoralizing and mean. And thats all in within a span of an hour. Within the turbulence of business life are people volitionally choosing to stick with it. People that can see, no FEEL, change happening. These people are willing to go against the current, to lead when majority of happy to follow, and to decide when others fear speaking up. These people are leaders, influencers and often times very much disliked. Not always. We don’t live in a world of absolutes. I know that, hopefully you do as well. Change is inevitable. Change is also very much disliked and feared due to the unknown it will bring. So what are we to do? Loaded question and one of a few such loaded questions that I asked Larry Benz CEO of Confluent Health (http://goconfluent.com), EIM executive and most impressively a 3rd time returning guest on Therapy Insiders podcast (first, second). Curious by what Larry had to say? Damn right you are! Hit play and enjoy. Sound off on twitter @updocmedia or our Facebook page
