Faith & Turnaround: How Servant Leadership Leads to Growth


Paul Grangaard speaks about how his faith upbringing molded a servant leadership style and consumer insights that together led to significant growth at Piper Jaffray and turnaround success at Allen Edmonds Shoe Corp and now at Faribault Woolen Mill Co. He will also speak about adhering to one of Minnesota’s own Ten Commandments — i.e. “Thou shalt skate to where the puck is going.”
