Empowering a team doesn't mean you let go of the reins and put your feet up on the desk while everyone else works, according to Andrew Parlour. It actually involves a higher level of involvement with your team and holding them accountable.
On today's episode of Empowering Leadership, Andrew Parlour of the Bühler Group joins host Doug McVadon. Bühler Group is a Swiss-based, fifth generation family-owned company that employs more than 12,000 people world wide and specializes in consumer foods and machine processing. As VP of Sales for the North American region, Andrew works with his teams on a daily basis to produce outstanding results.
Andrew and Doug talk about the value of failure, what he looks for when building a team, the hardest thing about being a leader, his background learning from his father's business, and the importance of accountability.
