Kevin Hancock is the CEO of Hancock Lumber Company, a six time recipient of the Best Places to Work in Maine Award. His upcoming book, The Seventh Power, One CEO’s Journey into the Business of Shared Leadership describes how his leadership changed after the loss of his voice due to Spasmodic Dysphonia during the height of the housing market crash in 2010. What seemed like a tragedy, turned out to be a blessing as it showed Kevin how to empower employees of all levels to lead themselves and take responsibility for themselves and their work. With only 1/3 of American workers describing their experience as engaging, Kevin lays out the framework for a new leadership model designed to strengthen the voices of others and drive workplace engagement to record levels for the benefit of all.
In this episode, Kevin speaks to:
- Seeing yourself beyond your roles and titles in life
- How to create an employee-centered company culture where individuals feel empowered to share their true thoughts
- The importance of re-framing “limitations” and seeing them as “invitations”
