Read an excerpt from the interview with Ellen Sherberg below.
“Teams that trust each other can do amazing things. We have always been fortunate to employ a stellar group of people who are motivated by each other and the work we do. I’ve always known my biggest job as a leader is to align folks around a common goal, guide, and mostly get out of the way.
In March of 2020, we had a uniquely qualified team, including two recent hires tasked with developing the corporate team bonding aspect of our business. I couldn’t have asked for a more emphatic, creative, and hardworking bunch. Everyone showed up authentically for each other and for Kingmakers, allowing us to create and innovate our way to where we are today.” – Malika Jacobs
