The Art of Supportive Confrontation with Flip Brown

“You can’t grow your business without growing yourself.”

Flip Brown

Today, Flip joins me to talk about supportive confrontation. He notes that, contrary to popular belief, confrontation can be a good thing. He points out that no one can make a person feel anything, and he distinguishes between happiness and other similar states such as contentment or fulfillment.

He defines business culture and explores what’s behind the Great Resignation. He shares what James Taylor said about the secret to life, and he discusses the importance of taking care of our planet.
