Poor Leadership Moment  

  • During a company-wide meeting, I asked the team, ‘Who can name one of this year’s strategies?’ The silence I heard was the loudest indication that I had not communicated in a way that stuck with the team.

Best Leadership Moment    

  • One of my proudest moments was being able to rally our team around the company’s direction after our founder suddenly passed away. That first year, we grew 40% because of the team’s commitment to the organization and each other.
