SAN DIEGO—The importance of aligning yourself with people whose values match yours and having an open mind were among the topics discussed by the New Home Co.’s CEO Larry Webb and Woodside Homes’ CEO Joel Shine during the “Builders Unplugged” session at PCBC here last week. The two seasoned homebuilding professionals sat down with moderator Tim Sullivan, practice director for Meyers Research, for an informal and informative discussion about what they’ve learned in their careers.
Myers asked the two how they establish a culture in their business, and Webb said, “All companies have a culture. I want to work with people I love and care about in an organization that values its customers and each other. My whole role in this company is to make sure that the people who work with us come in and are excited and do the best work of their lives. Ultimately, I’m a coach, and I’m a much better soccer coach than a home builder by a lot. We’re all coaches—good and bad. The reality is, we all need each other.”
