The High-Performance Mindset

Ethics in Business

Barrie Bergman

Businesses are continuously faced with ethical dilemmas. Ask yourself, "Have our values changed? Should they? How can business bring our country together?" With Barrie's help, you'll discover how adhering to ethics and fighting the urge to do whatever it takes requires true strength. You'll master powerful leadership skills and learn how to create an environment where ideas are encouraged, employees are motivated and ethical behavior is the norm.


 

Why do some people get better results than others? The key factor? Mindset. Learn how mental discipline helps us to recognize opportunities and influence others. Join Scott and discover how to replicate the mental strategies today's effective leaders use to get ahead. You'll learn to overcome the most common mental blockers, refocus on the work that matters most, obtain practical ideas for elevating your personal and professional performance and lead others to do the same.
