Senior Operations Manager

What are some things you learned at the company?

One of the things that molded my growth was seeing how much thought goes into the decisions, and how much leadership seeks feedback from the people around them, to help understand the impact of decision-making. Just being a sponge in the room is inspiring. I adapted the styles of many leaders here and use that to create my own leadership style.
