Landscape Company Leadership
The most important part of a company’s true equity is not its equipment, buildings or customer list. True company equity consists of the values and virtues of its owner and leaders. A business can generally function day-to-day, but it can’t grow without leadership. When leaders are virtuous, they build trust. And trust is everything. If your people trust you, they will trust each other and, in turn, customers will trust your company and remain loyal. The Harvesters can show you how to build trust in your organization leading to a strong culture. Strong cultures produce happy people who produce higher profits.
