Executive Vice President and Chief Operating Officer

Implementing servant leadership is hard. It requires continuous reinforcement. We still constantly talk about it and spend resources on it. Unless an organization is committed to doing that, servant leadership will become a dusty book on the shelf.

Servant Leadership

We believe we've tapped into something more powerful than traditional hierarchical managerial styles. Put simply, Servant Leadership is what guides our managers to help others thrive. Their goal is to serve, not to be served.

This isn't just an ideal. It's a cornerstone in our training and development. Everyone in our company can share in and benefit from this philosophy. As more caring and more humble employees, we're delivering our best work.

Servant Leadership

Servant Leadership is not a program, or a training class or a motto. It is at the core of how we operate and, frankly, it's our 'secret sauce'. Leaders who are selfless, humble, who listen to and care for their employees and who get results through empowering others are the leaders that succeed at Waste Connections. And those leaders and their employees are what have allowed Waste Connections to succeed.

You'll notice that Safety is our top operating value. That's because we believe each and every one of us holds a responsibility to each other, our customers and our communities. In fact, we've infused Safety into our culture - relying on our servant leaders to consistently and effectively drive its importance across our organization.
