On September 10th we hosted over 100 business professionals from across the region for a LIVE recording of The Learning Leader Show. Ryan Hawk interviewed our founders, Doug Meyer & Dave Brixey, to get a true look into the makings of our amazing firm.
Here are some of the topics discussed and pictures from the night!
- Why our founders chose to leave Ernst & Young and start their own firm 17 years ago
- Their competitiveness with each other and how that has benefited the firm and their clients
- Giving each other the freedom to fail
- The respect they have for each other
"Doug is a moral and ethical giant. I admire and trust him completely."
- What prompted them to make ABC decisions. A decisions, we would make together. B decisions, we could make independently. And C decisions, our team would make.
- Learning how to become excellent leaders as the firm has grown from 2 to 70+ team members
- Having an A+ team
"We want to be surrounded by people who care. That translates to the non-traditional relationship. We build real relationships and provide real value."
- The most important clients to serve are the team members of Brixey & Meyer
- The Brixey & Meyer hiring process and the key qualities needed to thrive at Brixey & Meyer
- The importance of clear communication
- Taking measured risks & how to make tough decisions
"Dave was more risk tolerant and I was more risk adverse in the beginning. This helped push me way out of my comfort zone, and I valued that"
We are excited to share the full episode, so stay tuned!
