When you go above and beyond, and strive to do excellent work that exceeds expectations. When you come through time and time again for others. When you see positive solutions in the most negative situations. When you focus on making those around you superstars. You help them to grow and enjoy the success. This is what makes good leaders excel on a higher altitude of greatness. The rewards come from so many different levels.
What's the best lesson you've learned at Radancy?
One of the great things I have learned about working here is that you are truly empowered to go beyond the call in everything you do. You are encouraged and inspired to take on new things and responsibilities and run with it. This is an example of cross-competency empowerment in which you learn and grow through diverse challenges and situations outside your role area. You are recognized and rewarded by helping each other out no matter what role, or project.
