Claire Lew is the CEO of Know Your Team, a company dedicated to solving the problem of bad bosses.

In this episode, Claire shares her unconventional path to becoming a CEO, how she completely revamped her company's focus and business model, and why so much "thought leadership" around management gets it wrong.
