Today’s spotlight: Alana Mann

Title: President and owner, The Statesman Group

Background: Mann took control of her family’s 40-year-old business and expanded it from a residential developer based in Canada to a multi-divisional developer, builder, investor and manager.

Essence of leadership: “I strongly believe that the most effective leadership is not by way of dictatorship. We have a plaque in our staff room that says, ‘If you tell me, I will forget; please show me, and I will remember; however, involve me, and I will understand.’ This way of leadership has engaged our staff to be more empowered in their capacity and work towards what is best for the company to achieve greater success.”
