Shownotes

Kevin Hancock is CEO of Hancock Lumber Company, one of the oldest companies in America and six-time recipient of the “Best Places to Work in Maine” award. In 2010, at the peak of the national housing and mortgage market collapse, Kevin acquired a rare neurological voice disorder called Spasmodic Dysphonia (SD). When his own voice became weakened, he developed a new leadership style focused on strengthening the voices of others. He is now a champion of a work culture where everyone leads and every voice is trusted, respected, and heard. His new book, The Seventh Power: One CEO’s Journey into the Business of Shared Leadership, shares the philosophy, values, and strategies Hancock Lumber Company has embraced on its journey toward becoming an employee-centric company.
