064: Iggy Domagalski, CEO of Wajax on Leading with Trust

I still remember my first real leadership experience.

I was in Egypt and was asked to lead a team of 150 people. Before that, I led a group of 5.

This was a giant leap.

I enjoyed it despite the challenge but I remember how many things I needed to learn and change to be ready for the new journey.

Something similar happened to Iggy Domagalski – President and CEO of a Canadian-based company, Wajax, that serves major Canadian industries as one of the nation’s leading industrial products and services providers for over 160 years. 

When I interviewed recently on ‘The World Class Leaders Show”, Iggy sharted his approach when it comes to leadership and the giant leap took from running a much smaller company to being at the top of a major business – starting with people as the backbone.

By listening to this podcast episode, you will learn more about:

  1. Lead by putting your people first
  2. It all starts with trust from the top

  4. Make time for what is really important
