But it gives me the opportunity to set the stage and also to meet with my peers, with my team members, and also to share it with them and have them hold me accountable to that.”
- 25:48 “It’s the old saying, you treat people like you want to be treated. Like I mentioned I am an employee first so that’s kind of the space that I operate from. I want to be honest, I want to be transparent, I want to be helpful because that’s how I want my HR team to be with me.”
- 27:10 “Being as welcoming as possible and creating a strong foundation and an easy to navigate landscape for people to bring you into the fold. Meet people where they are and allow for those conversations to take place, because that’s the biggest part of our position is relationships. Building those and creating effective relationships and treating our internal customers and clients like we do our external customers and clients, and always being self aware and allowing others to be as well.”
