This episode is Part 2 of a 2-part conversation with Mark C. Winters, co-author of Rocket Fuel and the foremost expert and Visionary/Integrator relationship. If you haven’t listened to part 1 of this episode, go do that now.
In part 1 of this 2-part conversation, Mark and I focused on the dynamics between a Visionary and an Integrator.
What wasn’t shared in that episode is that great Integrators are RARE.
Mark and his team at Rocket Fuel University™ discovered there are 4 Visionaries for every 1 Integrator.
Which means really good Integrators are hard to find…and even harder to keep.
