Don Williams: Okay, so now I'm gonna ask you for a nugget, okay? Yeah. So something that's 24 carrot solid gold. A nugget of advice that you know that you should share with us today.

Richard Blank: I got so many, but let me just give you my first one is gamification culture. I told you before I collect pinball machines and stuff, and so I believe that somebody should be in a neutral environment to meet other people.

And to be able to recharge batteries. And it keeps me young. I mean, it used to be a passion. Now it's an obsession cuz I grew up in the seventies and eighties and I have the room for it. So any boss that creates an environment for people to enjoy themselves, that's number one. And secondly, it's about delegating.

Because in order for me to scale and to grow, I needed to have faith in individuals and to promote them. And I only believe in promoting from within what we'll bring in specialists for the IT department, but there is absolutely no way I will bring in an outside supervisor. They haven't earned the respect, they haven't raised the ranks, gotten their stripes or even known my company culture.

And so that's very important for me as well. And then another that I am a guest in this country. And I'm trying to break any sort of stereotypes that they might have of a, of an extranjero as a guest in the country, as a c e O of a company, a telemarketer or call center. And so a lot of the agents say, you're the first boss that ever knew my name.

I go, that's a shame, because the other ones did have the chance, and unfortunately, I might be the last one to ever know your name, but while you're with. What I'm going to do is to make you better. I reduce any sort of fear to let them know that learning a second language is 10 times tougher than what they can do.

I'll give them all their resources to reduce any sort of fear that way, and once again, I'm gonna be their biggest fan of, I'm gonna find every single way that I can to promote them and to give them long-term job, St.

Don Williams: Sound like a transformational leader, which, you know, transactional leadership, uh, you have the mm, the president at top.
