“Ask more than tell,” Doug Klares says. The CEO/founder of one of the top staffing agencies in the U.S. leads not by having all the answers, but by welcoming the insights of others.
“I’ve come to terms with the reality, it isn’t my responsibility to know the answers, but it is my responsibility to find them,” Doug elaborates, believing it is his role to give team members the confidence to speak up, and provide a place where they can be heard.
Doug practices his leadership ethos by:
- Reveling in the journey, because the goal line shifts all the time.
- Embracing he is one person, and there are many others who can provide valuable perspective.
- Remembering no one is perfect.
- Not taking himself too seriously.
