(Re)Start Your Team Using Modus REE with Erich Hahn

Erich Hahn joins me to talk through the experience he and his team had in working through the Modus Right Environment Exercises (REE).  If your team is struggling and can't seem to get beyond simply working together and  becoming a high-performing team with a shared understanding of how they work, why they work, and how they can show up and support one another every day, this podcast offers a case study of how they can begin to develop the type of connection they need to rise and thrive together.
