So, it was a huge decision for me to make the leap to a new employer and I can tell you this much - I am glad that I did and that is due to Maggie Metcalf. The entire management team here at Chicago Title is excellent - and truly, you can only have that with good leadership at the top.
Maggie is just that.
Bringing fun and motivation to the workplace, she helps the team reach goals by positive reinforcement, is always there to listen and best of all - actually cares about people on her team. That, by the way, is not just my opinion, it's widespread.
Being a minion in the corporate world and that way of thinking for far too long, Maggie actually brought back my diminishing faith that there ARE people in leadership positions that give a damn about their employees, treating them like human beings versus "just employees". It's super refreshing...
That stuffy old corporate boss that you dread going to meet or have a lunch with? Nope, not Maggie. Fun, funny, motivation driven by her positive attitude, constantly laughing - you tend to forget once in a while that she's even "the boss" - I'm not even going to go into how much fun team building outings are - holy cow.
Maggie's leadership style is reflected in the people that report to her. mirroring her same fun, driven attitude and commitment to the team. I don't look at them as "people I work with", it's more like my "work family".
Since I made the decision to choose Chicago Title, Maggie, and her leadership team as that work family - you know what?
Monday morning? I find myself not dreading it as much as the majority of the people I know...
Maggie - Thank You for that.
