In this article, Kevin Hancock speaks about how important company culture and sharing leadership are at Hancock Lumber. Kevin explains how his journey to Pine Ridge opened his eyes to how narrow his leadership focus was. He was the largest voice in the room and after losing his voice, he could no longer be the same. When Kevin began opening the floor to other voices, he found a significant change in the way the company was able to operate.
“When a company is safe, people will relax and focus on helping the organization improve. The politics, the fear, and the distrust simply dissolve. Ego dissolves as well. People are allowed to just be themselves.” – Kevin Hancock
