If all were involved in the hard work, and in the reward at the end of the day… what kind of power would it have? Chris Todd imagined the possibility and made it a reality when he transitioned his company to an ESOP in 2019.
On his people-first approach that’s propelled Pride & Service Elevator from a team of three to 105, Chris shares, “The most significant lesson I’ve learned is really to be humble, and realize it is not all about you… In many cases, if you talk to your employees or customers, they have the answers you’re looking for.”
Chris’ other leadership tips:
- Check your ego at the door.
- Realize it’s a marathon, not a sprint.
- Make time for self-preservation.
- Be authentic. Don’t put on a show.
