In this episode…
In business, it can be all too easy to get wrapped up in the numbers and miss out on what matters most. Rules and procedures are important, but they can often eclipse the more vital aspects of running a company. This is especially true for businesses built on compassion and the people who provide it.
Wei-Li Chong was brought into KinderCare during a season of steady decline. During his time there, he helped the company regain its footing and enter a new period of success. Much of this was based on his approach to people, transforming culture to transform the business.
