Why do some teams get results and others struggle? Often it’s focus! Just consider if it's easy to get 10 things done or just one, yet so many leaders split their team’s attention across too many projects.

David also serves as Executive Vice President at Roadrunner, serves on the Board of Directors of Global Crossing Airlines, and serves as an Advisor to project44.
