Commanding Business

The challenge with growth is that the habits that got you here become the limitations that prevent you from getting there. Growth not only requires us to learn new habits. It requires that we unlearn old ones. I’m Tim Hamilton, CEO of Praxent and host of the Commanding Business podcast. Each week, I interview authors, experts and real world leaders about how they grew their teams, their organizations and ultimately themselves. From leadership to management and marketing to innovation, we’ll cover a variety of topics with an aim to uncover actionable takeaways you can implement in your own organization today.

Are you willing to do the hard work it takes to change and reach your desired outcome? If you are a CEO or an entrepreneur in business today, you must build up your mental, physical, emotional and spiritual resiliency to prepare yourself for adversity. When adversity presents, you will be able to see it for what it is and overcome it without taking it personally. Your business space is also your personal space. When you are down your business is down and when you are strong your business is strong. Gina Mollicone-Long details the 5 steps of change and how recognizing them can help us learn from obstacles that put us on the right track and lead us to realize our goals.
