Joe lives within his You Leading You Moment by:
First and foremost, being in a job and role that he loves and has passion for makes all the difference. The people, organizations and industry are so enriching that it feeds his passion daily for what he needs to accomplish. In addition, separating his roles and focusing on increasing his skills in those specific areas makes him not only a better leader, but produces a more professional organization. Finally embracing technology to focus on the most important items within the organization to reach its goals has helped to be a game changer.
Joe also wishes to thank all of his employees and wishes them a happy and safe Thanksgiving. A very special thank you to his assistant, Diane DeVivo.
