008: Could Doing Nothing Make You A Better Leader & Improve Your Company? w/ Rob Dube of imageOne

WITH Rob Dube

Overview

Stick with me here, because I’m about to say something a little different: meditating and doing nothing will help you become a more effective leader for your company. I’m sure with your overflowing calendar this may seem frivolous or even useless, but as my guest, today is going to explain, it will change your company for the better.

For Rob Dube, it all started in high school when he took on his first side-hustle selling Blow Pops to classmates. Since then, Rob has honed his leadership skills to become the president and co-founder of imageOne, one of Forbes’ best small companies in 2017. He is also the author of Do Nothing, and contributor to such prestigious publications as Forbes, Thrive Global, and Octane Magazine.

Rob is here to talk about his company and how he has helped to build a strong culture of valuing employees so that they can best serve their customers. He recounts the story of his company’s evolution and his realization that a bigger company is not always better. Throughout all this, Rob discovered better styles of leadership and organization for his company that have allowed it to weather the ups and downs of business and made it the success that it is today.

Quotes

7:34“We just knew that we wanted to provide an extraordinary experience for our customers and that’s what we started doing from the outset. We found as we went along that people were really the key to what was making great things happening at the company.”
17:37“We started to see how amazingly smart and talented our team was and that the decisions really didn’t need to be made by us. They all knew the right things to do every single time.”
23:22“When people understand things they make better decisions because they are educated. You can’t make good decisions if you don’t understand the full picture.”
