Great Leadership With Jacob Morgan

In today’s leadership spark, I chat with Kevin Murphy, CEO of Ferguson Enterprises. Kevin emphasizes a leadership style rooted in empathy, collective effort, and a commitment to developing others within the organization. He values transparent communication, sharing company data with all team members, and believes in earning loyalty daily while also addressing underperformance. 

Kevin also highlights the importance of challenging the status quo, even in successful organizations. He shares insights from his journey of transitioning from a family business to leading a major company, underscoring the significance of mentorship and continuous learning in leadership development.
