Hello Everyone, my name is Adam Kruse.
I am 26 years old, living in St. Louis Missouri, I am new to being a manager, and new to these forums, but I have been listening to their podcasts for about 2 months now.
I am a realtor, but in a very non traditional company, I have worked my way up to being the team leader, and lead manager, in only about 8 months. I think it is because I am dedicated to the company, and I do things that are helping the company directly, but maybe only helping myself indirectly. I love my job, and thats why I am so passionate about it.
As a manager, I had a few weeks of fumbling around, and having bad meetings, I love their podcast on thank you notes, and how to make a good agenda for the meeting. I am still digesting the one about creating a sense of urgency.
