What Do You Enjoy Most About Recruiting?
Getting to watch the teams I help to create grow in size and skill and provide value to the organization as a whole. Seeing teammates become close colleagues and friends that I helped bring together.

What Do You Enjoy Most About People Management?

I love the challenge of making all the pieces fit. Everyone has their strengths and weaknesses and finding ways to improve skills of team members while covering each other's weak points is definitely a great feeling.

What Do You Enjoy Most About People Management?
Managing people is hard, and even harder with a big team. Real enjoyment comes from helping people with their problems and helping them to grow and learn. Too many leaders micromanage their staff, stressing themselves out and stressing their staff. People also won’t grow if you keep telling them what to do! The really fun bit of leadership is when your staff tell you thanks for the support you give them, those comments drive me to keep helping my team.

Most people think I'm such a city person, but I actually LOVE nature. My dream is to live in the woods full time and have an apartment in the city for when I crave for civilization.
