In a brand-new episode of From the Editors, editorial director Anna Zeck and vice president of content Bryce Evans dive deep into what defines a great shop culture. That’s the topic of this month’s feature, the Best Workplaces, a peer-nominated program that recognizes the best cultures in the industry (2:30). One thing all the honorees have in common? Their ability to enjoy the journey, rather than stay single-mindedly focused on the results, and prioritize doing things the right way (4:50). Another leader who has done just that is Louie Sharp, owner of Sharp Auto Body and a venerable leader in the industry. We talk about Louie’s transformation as a leader (8:50), as well as his tips for genuinely caring about your people (10:20) and the power of managing by wandering around (12:00). Finally, we close out the episode by discussing how to find the best ways to refuel your energy as a leader (15:28), as well as easy tips for doing so throughout the workday (20:00).
