Christine Specht: Now is the Time to Live Our Values

In this special edition podcast about leadership during crisis, I interview Christine Specht, CEO of Cousins Submarines.

“Now is the best time to be living our values,” says Christine. The culture at Cousins is built on being optimistic, purposeful, passionate and grounded and Christine is heartened to see her team display these values not only when times are good, but also during the coronavirus crisis.

“People really do make the difference”, Christine says as she reflects on how her team is giving their all during these challenging times. “It really reaffirms for me the importance of hiring the best people you can afford.”

In addition to getting inspiration from her team and bringing the company values to life, simply taking one day at a time and providing clear, concise and consistent communications to franchisees and employees is how Christine leads with optimism during these uncertain times.
