Listen to the podcast

"One of the big things I've done with my team is to empower them. If you've got people who are willing, able, and technically savvy, you should allow them to help you with reports and communication, and I let them own that decision. If they make the wrong decision, not beat them down, but really try to utilize the people around you that are capable, and that will help you." – Dr. Rebecca Robbins
