Title: Kevin Hancock of Hancock Lumber: Five Steps We Must Take To Truly Create An Inclusive, Representative, and Equitable Society
Author: Alexandra Spirer
Text Snippet: Kevin Hancock is the CEO of Hancock Lumber, one of the oldest companies in America and seven-time recipient of the ‘Best Places to Work in Maine’ award. In 2010, at the peak of the national housing and mortgage market collapse, Kevin acquired a rare neurological voice disorder called Spasmodic Dysphonia (SD). When his own voice became weakened as a result, he developed a new leadership style based on strengthen the voices of others. He is now a champion of a work culture where everyone leads and every voice is trusted, respected, and heard. His new book, THE SEVENTH POWER — ONE CEO’S JOURNEY INTO THE BUSINESS OF SHARED LEADERSHIP, shares the philosophy, values and strategies Hancock Lumber Company has embraced on its journey toward becoming an employee-centric company — where leadership responsibilities are broadly shared rather than power coming from the top down.
