Gene Hammett joins us on Diary of a Doer today to discuss leveraging our leadership to build amazing teams. 

As a hypergrowth researcher, Gene consults with companies to develop leadership strategies. He is the author of The Trap of Success and can be heard on his podcast Growth Think Tank

In this episode, you’ll hear Gene tell the story of losing $3 million in one day, and how he thinks leaders should respond to devastation.

Like all entrepreneurs, Gene says he’s “been through it all” and had become complacent with the level of success he had.

Gene speaks on the biggest lessons he’s learned along the way, and how to make hard decisions when trying to achieve a goal. 

“The team that got you here may not be the team that gets you there,” he says. 

He also speaks to activating the entrepreneur spirit at all levels of the organization and why that’s a good thing for growth.
