Building Leadership

Building Leadership: Leadership is most powerful when it is personal,” he said.

That ethic led him to chairing Habitat for Humanity of Greenville County’s inaugural CEO Home Build this year. The concept for the CEO Build was simple – take some of Greenville’s most influential business leaders and have them build a house together for a family that otherwise might not be able to afford to own a home.

In a world where corporate giving is usually by check and volunteers from lower ranks of employees, the CEO Build put leadership front and center. Each participant was required to put in four hours of hammering, sawing, painting and the like on-site and donate $5,000.
