President Advice

Q: What do you wish you knew about your job when you first started out?

President in Hayward:
`"$Get to Know Your Suppliers....."`
Get to know very well the companies that supply your organization. Get to know as much as possible. The home life, the corporate culture, the employees that work for the company including the owner and executives.

President in Lakewood:
`"$When put in a position."`
When placed in a position of authority in a small family owned business it would be wise to understand how everyone else feels about that. It would also be good to know exactly what everyone's job duties are instead of assuming everyone should know. Actually, after 6 years of being in the position, I would tell everyone that if they are offered a position in a family owned company, just say no.

President in New Haven:
`"$The amount of travel required."`
Don't lose site of work-life balance. It's too easy to think that your job means everything. Family first.

President in West Chester:
`"$It's the People you hire that make the difference."`
A difficult responsibility for a young executive is managing personnel and a large department of green workers. Before I worked at a Swiss luxury goods company, I had never managed more than a few support personnel at a time. While I had hired many vendors and outside contractors, hiring and cultivating a team of staff to support a department is a very different challenge and one that should be taken seriously. While at my Swiss company, I was challenged with creating their first national marketing department but the caveat was to hire from within. Since the company was fairly new in the US, its workers were also fairly young. It took a lot of patience, structure and listening to bring the new team together to work seamlessly as a unit. My team also appreciated that I took the time to train them while giving them an opportunity to lift their careers and elevate their career experiences. Advice: There is no replacement for good training.

President in St. Cloud:
`"$Interpersonal skills."`
The greatest gap I had after leaving college was adequate interpersonal skills to work with a wide spectrum of people. Many of those people had very little formal training or received their training in the service. I had no knowledge of serviced related culture or training nor training provided for craftsman apprenticeships.

President in South Bend:
`"$Weight."`
Be prepared for the weight of the responsibility. This is not a position for a selfish person. You have to give of your time and exhaust your energy as in this position you are now responsible for every employee, their families and their futures.

President in Phoenix:
`"$Networks are Important."`
Make sure you are networking all the time because you never know where contacts will lead.
