Transperfect (Co-Founder and Co-CEO)
During my junior and senior years in high school, I worked at a dry cleaning chain in Toronto. The overall experience instilled in me an awareness of overcoming challenges and taking responsibility seriously.
Listen to your clients. Focus on their needs. That means making the improvement of what you do a continuous priority. We elicit feedback from our clients and our employees on a regular basis, and it has enabled us to address important issues that we might otherwise not even know about.
This may sound simple, but it has produced significant results for me: set clear goals for yourself and your employees, and meet them. If you hold people responsible, you are empowering them; they have ownership of a specific task, and they become personally motivated to achieve those goals.
