DoughExecutive advisor Doug Haynes believes an effective leader must understand three critical elements of leadership: Building trust, creating a high-performance team, and leading people to achieve more at work and home. “I get great pleasure from helping people grow, reach higher goals, and achieve more,” says Haynes. “When you’re doing something you enjoy, you will produce more.”

I looked around at the talented people here, and I felt privileged to be able to join them.”
