Ezra Firestone’s Playbook For A Happy (And Successful) Team

How do you compensate people? How do you bonus them? How do you keep a team happy over time? If you’re trying to attract (and keep) great employees, you will appreciate Ezra’s clarity and insight on this subject. This clip is taken from his Blue Ribbon Mastermind.

You will hear a winning approach to:

  • Pay structure and perks
  • Culture and work-life balance
  • Equity Incentives and Phantom stock

And more!

“Compensation goes beyond what you pay somebody.” Ezra Firestone.
