Creating an Exciting Company Culture Through Leadership | Alan Quarry

Alan shares advice on creating an exciting company culture, providing examples from his own company, Quarry Integrated Communications, which is HQ'd in St. Jacob's, Ontario, with offices in Raleigh-Durham and San Jose. When hiring the sharpest tools in the shed, egos can create a lot of head butting in the board room, so Alan shares insight into how a leader can keep control of those bright minds, turning those egos into “We-gos”.

In this special episode of AQ’s Blog & Grill, broadcasting personality Angela Onoura turns the tables and interviews host Alan Quarry. Angela picks Alan’s brain on the topic of leadership: hiring people smarter than you, giving them the freedom to do what they’re best at, and how bureaucracy can negatively impact a business by squashing creativity.
