“I started my career at the very bottom and worked my way up every step of the ladder over the course of three decades. I tell my team this as a reminder that success doesn’t happen overnight, and that personal growth is a lifelong process. You have to continuously put in time and effort to get where you want to go. Supporting employees is an important part of this. I encourage people to come to me if they are struggling be it at work or at home. I am here and the company is here to make sure our team is equipped with the training, technology and tools they need to be successful.
At the end of the day, professional progress really comes down to how hungry someone is. What I look for in a new team member is that hunger, and drive to do whatever it takes to achieve your goals.
I read this quote the other day and sent it to my team, ‘A successful person has the habit of doing the things that failures aren’t willing to do.’ I think that puts it well. You have to be willing to sweep the floors and do the dirty work for the betterment of yourself and your team.”
