My guest on this show is Ryan Barton, CEO of Mainstay Technologies, an Inc 5000 fastest growing company and one of the “Best Places to Work” for 4 years running. Ryan has built a strong culture of truly engaged employees, where they have had virtually zero turnover in the last few years, despite “the great resignation” we are currently facing. It takes massively purposeful leadership to create this type of allegiance. Ryan and I talk about a lot of impactful topics in this episode including tying your spirituality into your business, developing leaders and creating a culture that proves to employees how much they are truly cared for. If you are someone who wants to own, start or lead a business in a way that is so much more than just making a profit… listen to this podcast.
