Dog Whistle Branding

In this episode I discuss the importance of setting your commander's intent, your company's core purpose and core values, so that your team knows what winning looks like. Commander's Intent is the foundation of your brand's core, and without, you're going into every battle unarmed. This episode will help you reflect on your company's core, and how to leverage it both internally and externally, to maintain your tactical advantage.
