Today’s guest is Cyrus Freidheim, the former CEO of both Chiquita and the Chicago Sun-Times and an absolutely legendary management consultant.

Consultants often get a bad rap for over-charging and under-delivering. (And let’s be honest – sometimes, they deserve it!)

But the RIGHT consultant delivers something that’s vital for your business: an outside perspective. It’s often the only way you can diagnose and fix your blind spots. And if you don’t, those blind spots will come back to haunt you!

In this conversation, Cyrus will show you how to use that outside perspective to grow your businesses. As a consultant, he’s turned around countless organizations. He’s served on dozens of boards, and of course, he’s faced his own leadership challenges as CEO of the Chicago Sun-Times.

He really has seen it all, and there is so much we can learn from him about the power of an outside perspective.

Learn how getting an outside perspective can help you recognize – and fix! – your organization’s blind spots. Plus, practical advice for anyone who’s leading a team through a major turnaround or pivot.

You’ll also learn:

- The first question you need to ask if you want to turn a business around
- What to do when you face a major disagreement you just can’t resolve
- Two vital ingredients in a successful consultant-leader relationship
- Why having (and becoming) a mentor is crucial to your success

Thank you for making the world a better place by developing your leadership!
