Alex Muñoz is the owner and principal at CSR, a services and consulting firm that specializes in the assessment, recommendation, and delivery of organizational performance enhancement and/or remediation. Throughout his career, Alex has sought those types of situations that “nobody wants and are the most difficult” as they also tend to be the most interesting and challenging.
An Atlanta native, Alex graduated from Georgia Tech with a Bachelor’s degree in Management and received a Master’s degree in Information Systems from George Washington University. After a 15-year career in manufacturing, health information management, and financial services, Alex broadened his experience even more by working in diverse industries ranging from multiple professional service verticals (e.g., law, medical, engineering, etc.) to the non-profit sector. He was instrumental in the turn-around of a public company that started at $18MM and subsequently sold for over $300MM.
In this episode, Tim and Taylor sit down with Alex Muñoz and discuss the importance of asking for help, knowing your organization’s purpose, how to wake away from a client, focusing on your strengths, and “holding court” at the family dinner table.
