Keepin It Real w/Caramel Podcast had an interview last night, December 16, 2022, with Jim "Big Red" Wetrich the Author, Veteran Leader, Mentor & Counselor. Jim is a person with character. We had a very awesome conversation. In our discussion on how people should be treated, we had the same mindset "treat people like you want to be treated." Jim has led teams for three continents over more than 40 years and consulted with over 100 companies, Jim Wetrich has seen great leaders who have thrived and ones that have failed. Jim is a leadership expert. Jim's leadership lessons are as highly sought after by today's business students as they are by Baby Boomers. From 2006 to 2014, Jim built a team at Molnlycke Health Care that grew the revenue over 7 times and the EBITDA over 20 times creating over $1BN growth in enterprise value and taking the US business from number 5 to number 1 in the served market with an employee satisfaction index over 95%. Jim is passionate about diversity and inclusion and hosted a two-day meeting for all women in the organization to discuss their unique challenges. Jim focuses now on coaching and mentorship and spreading his leadership lessons to help individuals become better leaders and organizations create great leaders. Jim's book "Stifled" is for future-minded leaders who want to keep up with an unprecedented pace of change in the workplace and deal with the issues that result from these changes.
Great leaders and managers are not about control. They inspire, enable, and get the hell out of the way.
A leader recognizes a person’s potential—a great leader helps develop that potential to its fullest. Stifled explores the techniques of successful leaders and managers in detail, offering ideas and solutions to all the challenges facing today’s organizations.
In the wake of a global pandemic, a blossoming worldwide social consciousness, and a titanic shift in how business is done, the major issues of leadership and management have morphed, intensified, and multiplied. From the management of millennials and 6 to diversity and inclusion to the need for transparency, the new global workplace, and managing the quantum speed of business evolution, Stifled tackles them all.
Stifled is a must-read for anyone operating in today’s exploding global economy. Here's where you can find "Stifled"
