In this video, Kevin Hancock speaks with Small Atlanta Business Show host Jim Fitzpatrick about his new book The Seventh Power: One CEO’s Journey into the Business of Shared Leadership. They discuss his background and the journey to Pine Ridge. During his time there, Kevin came to the conclusion that in nature power is dispersed. He took the lessons he learned there and brought this shared leadership model to Hancock Lumber.
“I think that a company will perform better when everybody is leading than when just a few hold the decision making responsibility in the center. But my real interest in dispersing power and sharing leadership is bigger than business. It’s about helping every human being self actualize, and come into their own voice, and be confident with and comfortable with their own identity and perspective.” – Kevin Hancock
