Bravotv.com: Had Tamara been keeping you in the loop about the problems among Elise and the rest of the team?
Bravotv.com: Do you admire Jim’s ambition, or do you think he should have gone to Tamara before coming to you about the manager position?
JG: Yes, I do admire Jim’s ambition. At Gibbons Whistler we have an open-door policy and there are no rules about who can talk to whom about what. We try to keep things simple.
Bravotv.com: What was your take on that bobsledding fiasco? Should Elise have sat it out?
JG: Every leader has their own style on how they want to get things done. If I was there with the people I led, I would certainly have given away the experience to my team before partaking myself. Every leader has their own style, and I respect that.
