Building a business in which collaboration is a cultural norm is a team sport!

Our team and office culture is so engaging. It’s awesome to be in a place where we’re actively curious about what other roles in the company do and what their challenges are. That reinforces two core attributes of successful sales executives that are curiosity and passion for both our customers and our peers.

Through cultivating open and honest communication. I encourage my team to voice their ideas, think outside of the box, and to take ownership to find creative solutions to resolve customer issues.

Everyone on the team and the company can and will reach out to me. I also attend weekly stand-ups in our Denver office, regularly ask for feedback in our team slack channels, and stay in touch with managers and ICs when it comes to deals, problems, etc.
