In our fourth segment in the continuation of our latest Leadership Interview with Dick Foster, he discusses the value of having ongoing structured dialogues within a company’s executive committee. These structured dialogues are open-ended, and used as the vehicle to change people’s perceptions of their companies, and the issues they confront in their competitive markets.
