Following the success of his last interview Dom Moorhouse is back on the podcast for Round 2!

For those of you who may have missed the first episode Dom Moorhouse is a business advisor, angel investor and serial entrepreneur. In 2004 Dom founded Moorhouse Consulting which he grew from nothing to a business that he sold for c.20,000,000 less than 5 years later. You can listen to Dom’s first interview here -

If you’ve listened to his first interview you’ll know he credits much of his success with being exposed to and then developing high performing teams.

In our first interview we covered a huge amount of ground but we didn’t get a chance to cover this specific topic so I invited Dom back on to talk about why High Performing Teams are so important and how you can develop one in your business, practice area or project team

In today’s episode we go in to detail on why high performing teams are critical to your success. We discuss the academic research that Dom conducted that proves this out as well as how you can develop your own high performing team utilising Dom’s Team to Tribe Model.

Following this we pick up on some of the questions that you sent in for Dom to answer including Dom’s advice to his 30 year old self, which may not be quite what you expected and what Dom’s morning routine looks like among other great questions
