"Don’t take your leadership presence for granted. Now, more than ever, transparency is key. As a leader, I consider how much I share, what my motivations are, the most appropriate time for information to go out, and how the message will be received based on our company’s cultural norms."
David Hassell is a serial entrepreneur, business columnist, and speaker, who believes that when leaders support their employees in becoming their best selves, high engagement, performance, and uncommon loyalty naturally result.
As co-founder and CEO of 15Five, David and his team have developed industry-leading performance management software that helps leaders and managers drive high-performance and build phenomenal cultures via a suite of features including weekly check-ins, OKR tracking, 1-on-1s, and peer appreciation. Having started the company over eight years ago as a group of fully remote people, the company has built over 4 offices now, with nearly zero attrition, rapid growth, and awards like Inc.’s Best Places to Work and ranking #3 on Glassdoor’s Best Places to Work list for companies with fewer than 1,000 employees.
