Women in Propane recently launched a Podcast called ‘Through the Leadership Lens’ hosted by Freddie Ridler of Rural Computer Consultants and Bridget Kidd of the Propane Education & Research Council. One of the latest interviews is with Dan Richardson, President & CEO of Conger LP Gas in Georgia. Richardson recalls being a bag boy at a local grocery store and being asked to find someone to sweep the floor. Right after successfully recruiting a co-worker to sweep the floor, Richardson was given a leadership role at the store.
In the podcast discussion, Richardson discusses the importance of choosing the right people to help lead the company in the right direction. He feels it is very important to not be intimidated by having strong people around you and he is always proud to bring members of his team along to industry and community events.
Richardson’s advice during the discussion ranged from the importance of taking risks to the importance of keeping chocolate in the vehicle.
