bWise Episode 1: Ed O’Malley on Empowering the Workforce
Description of this episode
“Hire the best people, trust them and delegate with abandon.” This is just one adage we hear from Ed O’Malley, the head of insurance brokerage and consulting at NFP during his interview with us. Ed offers advice on how to engage and empower employees and urges leaders to leave room for employees to be independent, even if that means leaving room for failure.
