"Work hard, play hard."
Director of Operations:
Ownership utilizes the DoO to run the company - a lot on one set of shoulders with Ownership still active (highly) in day to day operations. Company strives for and thrives upon efficiency and simplication - everything is broken down to a job/task level and implementation is time measured and turned into a metric.
October 2015
"Must have great communication skills, multi-task, high stres."
Director of Operations:
Develop key relationships with direct reports, trust who you can delegate work to and then delegate. Prioritize daily what needs your attention that day. Confront situations head on to prevent things from getting out of hand. Be pro-active so change is easier on your team.
