Lee has a reputation for building cohesive, high- producing teams who get a lot done well and have fun at the same time. She is a straight talker who doesn’t hold too many punches, although she does her best to be pleasant about it. Her big laugh and sense of humor have gotten her out of a lot of trouble.

In this episode, I talk with Lee about her book, “The Boomerang Principle.” The book describes Lee’s experience and advice on rehiring employees and building lifetime loyalty amongst your current and past employees. We talk about how to create high-performing work cultures ready for the future.
