Family Business Breakfast:

The Business of Shared Leadership

What if we could create an organization where everybody led? Where every voice felt heard, respected, valued, trusted, and empowered? These are the questions a sixth-generation CEO, was forced to ask himself when he lost his full ability to speak. Then he sought to find the answers.

Kevin Hancock is the managing owner and chairman of one of America’s oldest family businesses, Hancock Lumber Company, which was established in 1848 in Maine. In 2010, Hancock was diagnosed with spasmodic dysphonia, a condition with no cause or cure, that caused him to lose the full use of his voice. Since then, he’s created The Business of Shared Leadership, to share what he’s learned on his journey to reinvent the fundamentals of leadership, followership and free enterprise.

We kick off the 2023-24 Breakfast Season with a dynamic presentation from Hancock, who’s become an award-winning author and nationally recognized public speaker. Kevin will discuss the potential for using capitalism to advance humanity by creating an employee centric work culture designed to disperse power, share leadership and strengthen the voices of others. Attendees will be challenged to learn how they can soar to unprecedented heights on the wings of thriving humans at work.
