In this episode, Heather speaks with Garry Ridge, CEO of WD-40
about his leadership journey, a time when he was not the nest
leader he could be and what he did to come out of it, how he
transformed a company from good to great by focusing on people
first and maintaining a learning culture. Garry co-authored a book
with Ken Blanchard and moved his organization from $200 million in
revenues to $2.2 billion all with focusing on growing people and
helping them step into their best selves.
We must take care of people to move from success to significance

We can be both tough-minded and tender-hearted
Be open and curious
Educate yourself to streamline the conversion to the leader with heart
