Episode Summary: Dave Deluca

Dave Deluca never went to camp as a kid, but got hooked on it when he became a camp counselor in college. Now he’s spent four decades working in YMCA camps as a counselor, a camp director, and now a CEO of Hayo-Went-Ha Camps, overseeing two major YMCA camps in Michigan. Most of what works for a good YMCA camp works for Fortune 500 companies, too: When you become a leader, ask for help; when you hire, look for empathy and compassion before skills; and when you’ve got the right people, “you’ve got to let them paint the porch and carve the turkey.” You’ll be amazed how many lessons from YMCA camps apply to your work today.
