Kip Tindell, former chairman and CEO of The Container Store, was at the helm of the company since the first store opened in Dallas, TX in 1978 until late 2019.
In 2014, he, along with Paul Keegan and Casey Shilling, wrote the book, Un-contain-able. In it, Tindell reveals the seven foundation principals of his unique values-based business philosophy.
Among those, my two favorites are:
Hire one great person and you get three great people. One great person elevates the game of everyone around them to a new level.
Communication IS leadership. Tindell believed every single employee should know absolutely everything, other than don’t talk about individual compensation. Beyond that, be fully transparent.
Good leadership advice all around.
