NYC Media Lab 2018

I had the pleasure of attending NYC Media Lab 2018 which brings together all the top student innovators from Universities around the city.

But for employees to be good ambassadors, they have to feel invested, not just in the mission and vision of the organization, but also in the people. And they have to feel invested in by the organization and the people as well.

Part of making sure employees feel invested in is making sure they have good management. Individuals who can direct them and make them feel valued and that they are, and the work they are doing is, important.
