Building a Great Team Starts with Connection

By: Steve Freed, Induron Northeast Regional Sales Manager

Teams form in all aspects of life. We typically associate a team with sports, and in Philadelphia, we’ve had a pretty good run of success recently even though we haven’t gotten over that final hurdle just yet.

Andy OdorzynskiFor the first time in a while, I’m optimistic! I look at the beginning of 2023 very much like a student finishing college and beginning a new career: We spent the past few years working our butts off! The results were good most of the time, but we also had to work through some failure. We had to get serious about our priorities and decide to push through the tough stuff.
