We’re bringing you a conversation packed with insights, drawn from real-life experiences and interactions with seasoned CEOs.
Leadership is not static, it’s dynamic, continuously changing, and adapting to the corporate ecosystem. We shed light on the tenure of CEOs, whose typical ‘shelf life’ is surprisingly short – around five to twelve years. The reasons? A crucial need for innovation, fresh perspectives, and continuous organizational reinvention.
Dustin shares his six-year journey as a CEO, providing a unique glimpse into the challenges and triumphs that define the helm of a company. Leadership is not just about creating stability and repeating successful processes. It’s also about initiating change within yourself and the organization while balancing stability with innovation. Every leader faces this paradox, making this episode a must-listen for anyone in a leadership role, no matter the industry.
What does it mean to lead a company for over three decades? How does one maintain a fresh, innovative approach while providing stability? How can leaders not only reinvent their organizations but also themselves at regular intervals without causing confusion or instability?

Listen as we dissect the delicate balance between maintaining stability through tried-and-true processes and fostering innovation. Discover how leaders can refresh their perspectives and approaches periodically without sending mixed signals to their team. Understand the importance of listening to new team members and providing them the space to offer fresh insights and perspectives.
We talk about the type of mindset required to lead a company through exponential growth phases, focusing on creating value and driving innovation. How can leaders avoid the invisible pitfalls that come with a static mindset? How can they continuously challenge and reinvent not only their organizations but also themselves to stay relevant and effective in their leadership roles?
In a world where imitation is rampant, understanding and reconnecting with your ‘why’ can set you apart, providing a unique value that is irreplicable. We discuss the importance of understanding and communicating this ‘why’, the driving force behind your leadership and organization, drawing examples from various industries, including finance and hospitality.
