In his best-selling book, Practice What You Preach, David Maister highlights one of the strong beliefs of managers of successful firms that he studied: “Development of people precedes and has a greater priority than profits.”At Taylor, developing our most valuable resource — our people – is of the highest priority. We help them grow and flourish as skilled marketing communications professionals, valued counselors, and respected leaders.
