“We’re gonna help you be somebody.”

In this episode, you’ll learn:

  1. New ideas and tactics for interviews and onboarding – specific advice for both interviewers and potential employees
  2. How to set a strong foundation for staff culture from day 0
  3. Why Imposing our own expectations and using scare tactics on others is not a good way to maintain relationships

Angela is raising the bar by:

  1. Inspiring her staff and organization to be PROUD of the work they do to improve their community
  2. Focusing on building relationships with customers and treating them as people first
  3. Embracing the strengths of the next generation of leaders, and instilling the values – such as loyalty – that may not come naturally

“Try to see the human side to the mistakes an employee makes.”

Angela Summers
