A tried-and-true CEO shows how to effectively translate business priorities in a manner that mobilizes and unites a team behind one holistic strategy.
All growth comes with growing pains—especially corporate growth. Larry Solomon, CEO of Solomon People Solutions and former executive vice president of human resources for the Dr Pepper Snapple Group, tackles the major challenges of mobilizing employees in his new book, Translate, Motivate, Activate.
