Her community involvement includes more than half a decade with Aloha United Way and Women in the World (New Hope), and three years with MDA Lock Up, and two years with Marriage Builders (New Hope).
Greater Good Radio brings Kate Hogle, who has been an account executive for more than 17 years prior to entering business, as she talks about hiring people of high potential and investing in their growth and development as an employee. Kate says that even though she has stumbled and fallen, having good individuals around her has helped in steering her back to the right path.
“Not everything was successful,” she says. “I tripped and stumbled along the way on certain things but for the most part I think what makes the difference is the people that I work with, really investing in them; and then the clients that we’ve been able to grow; and keeping with the times of the different things that I do.”
In this interview, Kate reveals how developing and maintaining good rapport with employees, and customers and clients make all the difference in protracting growth and achieving objectives.
