This week on CEO-Ready, we're in Marietta, GA with The Surface Masters President Justin Meier. Justin talks about how there are two aspects to being CEO-Ready: a mental piece and a physical piece. Mentally you have to know your stuff so you are ready at any time to be “peppered with questions” and physically you need to look the part, both to represent your expertise and professionalism.
This time on CEO-Ready, we're with PaveCo Founder/CEO Darin Whelan. Darin talks about the importance of hiring for attitude (be happy!) first and for skill second. He also talks about the creative ways he is instilling a close-knit culture, which is leading to major growth and success of the entire team and company. PaveCo is even adopting the CEO-Ready concept into their every day job performance (which was a big hit with yours truly)!
Darin lives out the CEO-Ready culture personally by trying to transform the lives of the people in his company. His "job as a leader" is to elevate his team, individually and collectively, however he can.
Side note: that's a 1-ton Bomag roller in the background ... Can't miss out on a sunny day in New England!
Check out this installment in our CEO-Ready video series! Join us again next week as we continue the exploration of this topic.
