Taking care of your people


One of the greatest joys of leading a team is providing the opportunity for the team members to grow and achieve self-realization in their professional lives. 

Collaborating with colleagues you respect and admire at work is the employment equivalent of finding a golden ticket in your chocolate bar – it’s a rare treat that makes the daily grind infinitely more enjoyable.

During Levon’s employment interview, I asked him how he maintained his expertise as an incident response professional. I anticipated an answer related to reading books and the news, given that he was not yet employed full-time in his field of work. Instead, he went beyond stating that he did volunteer work to defend journalists from hacker groups. I knew instantly that Levon possessed the hunger I was seeking in a team member.

Congratulations on another well-deserved promotion, Levon. I am certain that this will not be the end.
