Identify the ‘Influencers’ on Your Front Lines, CEO Advises
In business, the only thing that matters is what works, says Peder Johnsen, a third-generation specialist in senior living communities.
“The people in your company who are dealing with your customers – the clerks, the caregivers, the customer service reps – are where the rubber meets the road,” says Johnsen, CEO of Concordis Senior Living, www.concordisseniorliving.com, which owns, operates and develops senior housing communities.
“That’s why it’s essential for the company leaders, the men and women in the offices that are often far from the front lines, to be where the action is on a regular basis,” he says.
