We’ve all heard tales of CEOs ‘who couldn’t let go’. Where blustery entrepreneurial characters summon up their insurmountable egos and do their business damage, mostly by failing to hand over the reins to specialist staff who can do it better. However, today’s interviewee, Charles Towers-Clark, founder and (un-traditional) CEO of IoT frontrunner brand, The Pod Group, is exactly the opposite of what I’ve just described. He made the decision to step down as CEO and let his staff run the company, a move that has led to 50-100% YoY growth and little to no staff turnover. Towers-Clark tells us why all business leaders should do the same if they want human talent to compete with the rising dominance of artificial intelligence, (AI).
