CEO Toby Gabriner joined the show to share the lessons he’s learned from his 9 months working the role. The biggest shift in corporate culture, according to Toby, is in decision-making occurring throughout the company rather than simply at the executive level. Listen in as Toby explains how leadership can empower their workforce.


Some key takeaways:

  • Covid provided an opportunity for companies to reflect on every aspect of the corporation, from organizational structure to the frequency of meetings
  • Leaders should create frameworks within which workers  have leeway to make decisions- this empowers and motivates employees
  • Experimentation with new corporate policies is a win-win, whether the outcome of the new policy is positive or negative
  • Transparency is key: everyone throughout a corporation should be on the same page so that knowledge sharing and collaboration is seamless
