Trying to use the latest app to engage your team and find it not working? It is time to go "old school" and actually engage with them, human to human. One day while at work at Disney in 2003, Hans learned from a 4 year old boy that he had the ability to impact someone's life and all it took was a smile and a positive attitude. This lesson has served to be the foundation for the way Hans lives his life and is the foundation of "You are the M.A.G.I.C!" Come and learn how to empower your staff to make the difference, to go above.
