What Would Your Executive Team Say About Your Leadership Style?

We asked five local captains of industry to weigh in on what their executive team would say about their leadership style. Here is what they had to say:  

Chris Fedde President Hexis Cyber Solutions

Detect, disrupt, remediate: defense from inside the network

That’s a good question, so I asked someone who has been with me for a long time. He indicated my “artful” part was taking my ideas, adding in new ideas and steering them to the goals I set, while ensuring the team is totally supportive of the execution. I liked that answer, so I didn’t ask anyone else.

 Ethan Giffin
 Founder & CEO 
 Groove

Creative marketing, design & development

Always present but not always vocal. I try not to be the disruptive CEO that chimes in and changes direction at the last minute. I respect and recognize the value each team member brings to the table. I also support and push each “Groove-r” to learn and grow, both personally and professionally. My background isn’t typical, and either is my leadership style. Because of that, I also tend to stress that we don’t always look for the typical background in Groove employees. Life is about the journey and not necessarily the test score. so I tend to recruit and retain folks that have interesting experiences that can enhance our clients’ businesses.
