Today’s business leaders face relentless change and ambiguity. Uncertainty in the economy causes paralysis. Workforce mobility kills loyalty. Iconic products decline as fast as startups create new categories. And the pressure to do more with less can be overwhelming.
Now more than ever, brands and the people who lead them need clarity and guidance. The good news is that people have discovered ways to thrive in harsh environments for millennia. Brand vs Wild combines the latest in survival psychology with more than a decade of proprietary research into the factors that cause companies to lose their way, forming a survival guide for traversing the choppy and unforgiving waters of commerce.
It’s a business jungle out there. Brand vs Wild is your razor-edged machete.
