Danilo Quintero has been working at The Carvonis Group for a year now! If you missed the first part of our interview with the team leader, click here to get caught up. Otherwise, keep reading to hear more about what he’s learned over the last 12 months working at our company.
What personal and professional lessons have you learned since you started working here?
The importance of being able to coach people effectively. Everybody learns in a different way. I’ve learned to think outside the box and to find new ways to motivate people. You have to care about your team and the people you work with. If I think back over the 12 months that I’ve been here, this job has taught me the importance of having integrity and ethics in business. You have to care about helping people to build the skills they need to achieve their goals. I love being able to work in this office where people are always helping each other to reach the next level.
I got promoted to executive leadership after 10 months of working here. It took me longer than I wanted because at first, I wasn’t completely systematic in applying the work habits that I learned in training. I definitely learned the hard way. I used to be the guy that was always late in the morning. I wasn’t following the system to the T and so I felt the consequences of those actions and I learned from them.
We hear you recently attended a big conference in New Orleans. What was your biggest takeaway from the event?
It was a great experience because it helped me to see beyond what’s in front of me. I got to see the accomplishments that people have achieved in just three to five years. It’s amazing to see the success that people have had in our industry. I saw the bigger picture: I’m not working here to be a salesperson, I’m here to help people become successful, and by doing so I will become successful myself. That really clicked with me. I saw that it’s all worth it.
