An Interview with Rose Fernandez, CEO, Algenist
Rose describes some qualities of conscious leadership. Being open and willing to share is essential to becoming a conscious leader. Rose loves to provide context to her team; she tries to be as consistent as possible with her transparency. Overcommunicating is also essential. Rose makes sure to tell things to multiple people multiple times. She holds a town hall for her employees to deliver the financials, the state of the business, and people speak from different departments. Rose trusts her employees; she allows them to choose their own hours. If someone doesn’t want to be there, then they will work themselves out. Later, Rose speaks about becoming the CEO, being confident, and her time with Women’s Wear Daily.
