Working with others

Michelle Roach, VP of Operations

"Years ago, when I was having a hard time planning a vacation around a not busy time for production, my boss mentioned to me in passing: 'If you can't be away and trust that things will survive in your absence, then you're not doing a good job.' This helped me be a better manager by enabling my team to understand the bigger picture, to take ownership in their contributions to the success of the team, and for me to let go of having to do all the 'doing.'"
