Working Together for Excellence
I had the privilege of leading an offshore development team for 18 months. This team was located, literally, on the other side of the world in Hyderabad, India. This team was incredibly diverse and was an extremely talented group of professionals! I traveled to India in 2017 and this picture was taken on our last day there. When I changed roles at work, they sent me a coffee mug with this picture on it and it will be something that I always cherish. It's amazing to see what a team with different perspectives can do when everyone is working towards the same goal.
I am willing to work with anyone, anywhere. If you are willing to work with me, we can work together. There will always be personality differences on teams. It’s how we work around those differences that ultimately defines us. I take pride in the ability to find things in common with people that I meet. If that connection can be made, it's a great place to start in working together. It is important for our elected officials members to understand that they are in a role of leadership and absolutely must lead by example. The community and our kids are watching!
