Business Survival 101
During a seminar I gave in D.C. a few weeks ago, a question came up at dinner about surviving in today's business wilderness. I asked the group of execs I was with to write down on their napkins some of the conditions that were concerning them. What was really cool is that the napkins were white linen!
Loaded with these questions, I took them to someone I know to be the ultimate survival expert: Russia's Vladimir Demetrius Retrinov. Vladimir, or as his friends like to call him, Bill, was happy to answer the napkin questions.
There are so many pitfalls in business today that I thought together we could give you some help in understanding some of the survival tactics and skills that Vlad (he won't let me call him Bill) has learned and used over his many years in Russia's most difficult climate.
