It can be difficult for a business to improve how it operates from inside the organization. Sometimes, an outside perspective is needed. The large discount retail store you work for wants to improve its in-store restaurant management team.

YOUR ROLE

As a Leadership Consultant, you’ve been hired by a large discount retail company to help the company improve its leadership structure and approach to management.
