Episode 52 – In the C-Suite with Clay Steves, CEO, Habakkuk

THRIVE! As an orthopedic distributor in the midst of the pandemic what do you decide to do?  Clay’s answer is THRIVE!  That was Habakkuk’s theme word for 2020.  Think this is corny? It isn’t. Furthermore, Clay’s team follows their four core values – servant heart, teamwork, excellence and perseverance to deliver on their mission which is “We exist to help restore life within the orthopedic community”.  Clay has built his company up to 15 employees in less than 8 years.  We talk about how Habakkuk managed 2020 and what orthopedic distribution looks like going forward. According to Clay, the business model will not be going back to the 2019 version.  We also spend a lot of time on how Clay and his team built their leadership skills.  It is impressive.  I don’t know many people that can quote key learnings from leadership books like Clay can.  More important is the fact he put them into practice.

A note to listeners and subscribers – I have been getting more feedback and requests for slides when I have them.  This is great. I enjoy the interaction.
