Who do I think I am?
I truly see myself as a regular person. I can claim the titles of husband, father, son, brother, friend, peer, student, etc. I share these titles with many people and it is through these commonalities that we can relate to each other.
What do I do?
My day job consists of being a Network Operations Supervisor for a local telecommunications company. But I am immensely grateful for the opportunity to help those around me to achieve their personal goals and professional ambitions.
Why do I do it?
A detailed explanation of the “why” can be found here and in the video above. But I measure my success by the success of my people. Things like developing my employees into leaders and gaining leadership positions, helping students navigate the higher education admission process, and supporting people through tough situations are a small sample of what motivates me.
How do I do it?
I recently completed philosophical exercise in which I asked family, friends, and peers to explain what I alone “do”. Interestingly, the key words used by these individuals revolved around how I make them feel and the consequence of our interactions. I make them feel engaged, heard, appreciated, hopeful, and valued. The consequence of our interactions includes accountability, high standards, alternate perspectives, and challenged.
