Krister Ungerböck on the Manage Smarter podcast from SalesFuel

Krister Ungerböck is a successful tech CEO who has been featured in national publications such as NPR, Forbes, Inc, and Entrepreneur for his practical, unconventional communication insights on compassionate leadership, emotional intelligence and employee engagement. 

His unique insights are informed by real-​world experience leading teams in three languages while growing a global company 3,000% (from $1M to $30M).

In this episode, Audrey, Lee and Krister discuss:

  • Definition of Talk SHIFTs.
