Signature meet the team

For this months Meet the Team, we’d like to introduce Andrea. We couldn’t be more proud to call her one of our top Leaders!

So Andrea, tell me about yourself?
“I am originally from Sandy, UT. Graduated from Brighton High School with a 4.0 GPA. My family is really into hot rods, and I love to collect cars, currently I have a 93 mustang GTLX. Other than that I love to fish, camp, motocross and anything outdoors.”

What is a goal of yours?
“I want to go far in this life. I want to pursue this opportunity and be the best at everything like training, coaching, and consistently being the top in this office. To be honest I want to be like Mitchell [our leader and partner in Kansas City] and where he is at now.”

Where would we be able to find you on your days off?
“On a lake somewhere with my family.”

Why do you love working at Signature Business Solutions?
“Really, I love what I do. I love getting to talk to people all day long and actually get to help people in need. It’s fun and different everyday, and the office culture is like no other. I also love how I’m not micromanaged, where that was something I have always wanted. Honestly, at least to me, I have the easiest job in the world. Because it fits me and who I am so well.”

Keep up the great work, Andrea!


15 Compelling Questions That Will Improve Your Leadership Skills

Posted on Updated on

BY SUSAN STEINBRECHER, CEO, Steinbrecher and Associates

Humility and selfless commitment to others are not character traits most people acquire overnight. Begin with courage and focus, by taking an honest look at yourself. Once you set aside the time to observe your leadership style, you’ll be in a better position to influence, inspire, and motivate others more successfully.

Assessing Your Humility

The following questions may help you determine your ability — and willingness — to put the ego aside. Answer the questions as honestly as you can. Take time to reflect on your answers and notice any areas that could use some improvement.

  1. Do you have a tendency to boast about your achievements?
  2. Do you have a propensity to downplay or minimize your achievements?
  3. Have you ever been told that you have misrepresented yourself?
  4. Would you consider yourself to be a perfectionist?
  5. Do you have difficulty admitting you don’t know something?
  6. Do you have to be the one who brings a new idea to the table?
  7. If a colleague contradicts you, do you have a knee-jerk reaction?
  8. Are you willing to seek out others to get a fresh perspective on things?
  9. Do you tend to see yourself as the most important one at work?
  10. Do you feel that you have accomplished all you need to know?
  11. How often do you reflect on the fact that your position or business may be able to continue without you?
  12. Are you anxious to know whether others consider your ideas, opinions and overall work important?
  13. Do you spend a greater percent of your time during the workday taking care of others and the business versus trying to excel, lead or perform?
  14. How often do you express appreciation or gratitude for the contributions of your employees?
  15. When you encounter obstacles, is your tendency to react rather than see the larger perspective?

As Carl Jung once said, “Your vision will become clear only when you look into your heart. Who looks outside, dreams. Who looks inside, awakens.” Maybe it’s time to awaken to the possibility of leading with love and humility.
