Get To Know Gina...

Q: What is the best advice you have received in your career that has helped you feel successful?

A: You are not that important. When I think I am more important than I really am, I make it difficult for others to be successful. I always believe that no one person in any organization is so important that if they left, the company would fall apart. When I learned that I was not that important, it allowed me to delegate and help others grow to their fullest potential.

Q: What is one or two ways you find to decompress from a full day of work? 

A:  I will relax, watch TV, or go for a hike or walk. Checking out from thinking is super important. Finding ways to be quiet and meditate gives me clarity.

Q: What is the book(s) you've given most as a gift, and why?

A: The book I gift most often is Failing Forward by John Maxwell. As a recovering perfectionist, I have found this book to be a fundamental resource for anyone who struggles with failure. It has greatly influenced my life and helped me to grow personally and professionally.
