Why Effective Management Begins With Character - Audrey Parker

In Chapter 12 of 21 in her 2011 Capture Your Flag interview with host Erik Michielsen, entrepreneur Audrey Parker answers "What Has Your Business Experience Taught You About Going into Relationships with Someone You Love, Respect and Trust?" In co-founding and growing her company, CLEAResult, she finds cornerstone characteristics of the management team to be integrity and trust. Individually and collectively, knowing others would own up to making mistakes permeates across all levels of the business. This creates a company culture built upon love, trust, and respect. Parker is currently on a one-year sabbatical. Parker co-founded CLEAResult, an energy management consulting firm. In 2010, CLEAResult ranked #144 in the Inc. 500 list of fastest-growing private companies. In late 2010, CLEAResult was sold to General Catalyst Partners. Parker graduated from Wake Forest University.
