Quotes from our Special Guest Karmyn Norwood

“Yes, we have to deliver our products, but really the people who I’m leading; they are the most valuable asset and not necessarily the products.

In a business environment, you quickly learn that you’re not the smartest person in the room, and to get to the end state, it takes the entire team, and there are strengths and weaknesses on every team. We leverage those strengths and we develop and build the weaknesses, and so as a leader, a first time leader, I had to learn that very quickly.”
