Share This Post
Jim was interviewed by AdvisoryCloud on 06/14/2019 as part of our Featured Advisor Interview series.
AC - Tell us more about your main areas of expertise for being an advisor?
JR - I have spent over 30 years recruiting candidates for all types of automotive manufacturers at the dealership level, have set up programs for candidates to train and grow at three levels, and have helped them work towards a career, not a job. I work at bringing out the best in others because I believe it also brings out the best in you. It's important to hire people that want to work for your company, not for your money.
AC - Describe your main motivation for being an advisor?
JR - There is nothing better than helping people grow by turning a job into a career.
AC - Elaborate on the types of situations, challenges or decisions, you feel you could add the most value to as an advisor?
JR - Finding, training, and retaining the right people for the right reasons with a three-tiered system.
AC - Do you see any disruptive trends on the horizon in your industry or position?
JR - Everything today is changing at the speed of light, "If it's not broke don't fix it" is a saying of the past. We are in a changing world, blue oceans turning red and red oceans turning Blue, we must be looking at tomorrow. Giants are failing, long term is one year not three to five years. Rebuild your future by looking at your people all the time, their future is your future.
AC - Tell me about the most impactful project or decision you’ve been involved in as an executive.
JR - People problems are what I do but solving the wants and needs of businesses and people problems are not always money. Happy employees need less management. Changing the way businesses are managed by allowing employees to make decisions at a higher level.
