Comm3: The Leader in VoIP Technology
Vision is the essence of leadership. An effective leader articulates that vision, both visibly and convincingly, through action. This point is crucial because in the business world, talk is cheap, and actions speak volumes about the integrity of a leader. Respected leaders provide value and return on investment at every opportunity, as a course of business—not just for special customers, or just on high-margin contracts. Leaders deliver every time. These leadership hallmarks define Comm3 and its founders, David Blum and Troy Cryer.
David served his country as a combat helicopter pilot. He and Troy often draw from the U.S. Army’s principles of leadership to guide Comm3. Thus, the guiding principles of Comm3 and its leadership position and vision are:
- Be technically proficient - As a leader, you must know your job and have a solid familiarity with your employees’ tasks.
- Seek responsibility and take responsibility for your actions - Search for ways to guide your organization to new heights. And when things go wrong, they always do sooner or later -- do not blame others. Analyze the situation, take corrective action, and move on to the next challenge.
- Make sound and timely decisions - Use good problem solving, decision-making, and planning tools.
- Set the example - Be a good role model for your employees. They must not only hear what they are expected to do, but also see.
- Know your people and look out for their well-being - Know human nature and the importance of sincerely caring for your workers.
- Keep your workers informed - Know how to communicate with not only them, but also seniors and other key people.
- Develop a sense of responsibility in your workers - Help to develop good character traits that will help them carry out their professional responsibilities.
- Ensure that tasks are understood, supervised, and accomplished - Communication is the key to this responsibility.
- Train as a team - Although many so called leaders call their organization, department, section, etc. a team, they are not really teams...they are just a group of people doing their jobs.
- Use the full capabilities of your organization - By developing a team spirit, you will be able to employ your organization, department, section, etc. to its fullest capabilities.
