People Business w/ O'Brien McMahon

O'Brien McMahon

Every business is in some way a “people business”. Success or failure often comes down to how leaders manage the people dynamics of their organization. People Business is a weekly podcast focused on what it takes to build and lead a successful, profitable business by navigating the human element. The host, O’Brien McMahon, is a Senior Vice President in Lockton’s Total Rewards Group where he works with companies to build and manage their benefits, compensation, and retirement programs. Having met with 300+ companies in the last decade, he’s seen all manner of industries, business models, and leadership styles. He’s fascinated by what makes people tick and how they work together (or don’t).
