Lean in, Together
Driven. Caring. Fun. These words describe our team of Mortenson Portlanders. We have each other’s backs and we take the time to celebrate successes along the way. There’s a grit, a determination, that sets us apart from the rest. Our best moments happen when we roll up our sleeves and dig in to solve any challenge we might face. When we’re all rowing in the same direction, we have the biggest opportunity to make positive change as individuals, as a company and as an industry.
Lead with Compassion
It’s important to lead with kindness and honesty. Simply taking the time to understand the perspective of others can make all the difference in someone’s day or experience. We create stronger connections when we slow down, listen and ask questions. Early in my career, I was drawn to the tangible nature of what we build. What I realize now is that it’s more than bricks and mortar. It’s the teams that rally together through thick and thin to create wonderful spaces for the benefit of our customers and our communities.
Break through Barriers
We need to be stewards of developing the next generation of leaders. We’re on a journey to become a more inclusive and diverse organization, but with the right mindset we can change “business as usual” and open doors that bring in new energy and challenge us with different viewpoints. I’m truly grateful for the teams I work alongside every day and I’m excited to continue our positive trajectory. It will inspire us to innovate in new ways and continue our industry leadership regionally and nationally.
Today’s leaders need to be agile in this rapidly changing world and finding everyone’s leadership potential is a strong motivator for me. Flexibility and adaptability are essential traits that help us prepare to lead when facing challenging situations.
