What’s the best advice you’ve ever received?
Management is an upside-down pyramid. I have carried this philosophy throughout my career. I believe that if you are not available to help your team members and are not listening to what they are telling you, you will not be successful. All employees need to feel valued and need to have a purpose in doing their jobs well.
