Some business leaders say, “They can get happy on their own time. I just need them to productive when they’re here.” Tom Manenti, Chairman and CEO of MiTek Industries, Inc., a subsidiary of Berkshire Hathaway, does not believe in this approach. Instead he believes, “Happy employees are ‘purpose partners’ and happy customers and high profits will follow.”
In this excerpt from Tom’s session of ExecuNet Master Class you can hear him explain his thinking on this important leadership topic.
