Leading through Change: Lessons Learned in the C-Suite

May 13, 2022 | Podcast

The last two years have put a spotlight on one of the most important skills a leader must develop—how to lead through change. Dave Stende, former Managing Partner/CEO of Eide Bailly, is our guest on this episode of the EB & Flow podcast, and he’s learned a great deal about how to do just that.

Dave served as the Managing Partner/CEO of Eide Bailly for the past nine years, from 2013 to 2022 and was Chief Operating Officer for seven years before that. Dave was interviewed for the podcast just before his time as CEO was coming to a close, and he discussed what he’s learned about leadership throughout his career, what advice he has for leaders in 2022, and some of his favorite memories from his journey.

“The one thing I've learned is the more you know, the more you realize you don't know. And I can look back on the nine years and realize at the beginning, probably I was a little naive about a few things. And I learned. And the more I learned, the more I realized, man, there's a lot I don't know. And, you know, I think in a way that probably helps because it certainly grounds you and it probably opens your mind to really hearing the opinions of others because you don't know all the answers. And you need to build a good team and you need to rely on their input and trust their decision making in the process, too.”
