Showcasing YOUR business expertise LIVE on Radio

Julie Cooper answers questions on people skills in business

We ask people skills expert Julie Cooper, and regular Radio Horton presenter on the Knowing Your Business show,  questions on how to improve that gap of people skills in businesses that improves the business bottom line.

Apparently, how people behave and speak to each other is critical to the business bottom line. If they are motivated and inspired, the business doesn’t have to worry about targets – if they are performing, so is the business. That makes perfect business sense.

To add, whilst every business owner, manager, team leader should understand that, many of those tasked with the duties say there is often a huge disconnect from that understanding and the reality of actions.

This show was broadcast on Radio Horton 14th August 2014.
