Bonus: Reframing the 'leader' - a conversation with Laila Ghambari
Jeffrey Young speaks with Laila Ghambari, Director of Cafes at Stumptown Coffee Roasters
, to get a glimpse into how the pioneering specialty coffee business manages its cafes and learn how she has been steering the ship through the turbulent waters of the pandemic.
We originally spoke to Laila for our episode on Fostering team culture
, but she offered such thought-provoking insights on leadership and navigating through change that we felt the interview deserved an episode of its own. In this conversation, Laila challenges us to rethink the traditional role of the leader and highlights the importance of serving the managers who report to you, instead of the other way round.
