There are very few people that understand the nuances of driving and elevating a team forward. Someone that can be a friend, mentor, motivator at the same time as being the “Boss.” I was NOT that someone until working one-on-one with Tony Smith. One of the very first things he told in terms of team management that still resonates very much is, “Stand beside them during a battle and behind them in the celebrations of success. Then, when you take your place in front during failure, watch how they step forward to take their place next to you.”
Effective leadership strategies have decreased my stress levels and empowered our team members to get more out of their work. We’ve seen a positive change in our culture and profit margins!
Tony’s efforts have helped our businesses tremendously and someone we will continue to consult with
for years to come.
