Virg Palumbo on Building an Operating Cadence of a High-Performing Team
“At some point, you need to give yourself personal grace and organizational grace.”
“More is not better, better is better.”
When establishing a cadence, “onboarding matters.”
“Keep half-hour meetings to 25 minutes …”
“Take care of the customer, take care of your family … if you get pulled away, just circle back.”
