It’s one thing to practice servant leadership in ministry, but for Hobby Lobby founder and CEO David Green, that calling is also very much one of his company’s best practices.
In his new book,Leadership Not by the Book: 12 Unconventional Principles to Drive Incredible Results, Green lays out what his vision looks like for a thriving work environment, which he emphasized never involves asking employees or prospective employees about their own deeply held beliefs.
“We don’t, we shouldn’t and we don’t even want to,” Green told The Christian Post.
Instead, Green said he strives to create a working environment that focuses on the people who have made Hobby Lobby what it is.
“Hobby Lobby does a lot for our employees because we know they’re so important,” he said, pointing to the company’s minimum wage of $18.50 and closing stores on Sunday.
