Brittney Ramsay, President of Britt Land Services, explains her company's philosophy.

5 quick hits from Brittney

Favourite Alberta business: Camp Brand Goods. Albertans living their own dream, creating high-quality, comfy clothes, and really connecting with and enjoying the outdoors.

Book I'm reading: The Four Agreements.

3 things I love about my workday: The people I work with, the flexibility, and the challenge.

My leadership style in 3 words: Engage, empower, and listen

If I weren't running my own business I would be: Sad. Or hanging out barefoot on my own organic farm.

To us 1+1 = 3 is really the essence of team work. We know that we can create more, accomplish more, and exceed expectations—our client's, our team's, and our own—when we work together as a group.

When you own your own business, you learn very quickly that people approach situations and challenges very differently. With intelligent, highly-capable people working together to find a solution, we end up with ideas that one person may never have thought of on their own.

At Britt Land, we have daily meetings where we gather and talk about what's happening today or what our hurdles might be or what the week is looking like. We close each meeting by bringing up the energy—we know we're a team here, and we know that when we work together, we can accomplish a lot more.

This philosophy started with my father, Ray. He started Britt Land. Ever since we were young, he told me and my sister Breanne that we can do great things separately, but when we combine and work together, we are unstoppable.

And it's proven to be true.
