ORLANDO, FL – Travel and learning are mainstays of the FX Promotions culture. The team recently embraced both when they attended an industry conference in Dallas, Texas.
“We always have a wonderful time together when we embark on adventures,” said the FX Promotions Director of Operations. “The shared experiences help us bond, facilitating collaboration back in the office. In addition to greater cohesion with each other, traveling and conference attendance promises substantial growth.”
According to the company Director, the team also took advantage of the educational opportunity available at the conference. There were trainings and seminars for the top leaders in attendance. Areas of focus included business management, strategic planning, demographic research, goal setting, team building, and more.
“My colleagues and I really enjoyed the networking potential provided by the event as well,” stated the FX Promotions Director. “With so many influential people in attendance, details about product pitching are shared freely. Not only are there wonderful insights to gain, the relationships we build during these gatherings yield amazing long-term benefits. We’ve received referrals, entered into partnerships, recruited new team members, and found mentors this way.”
FX Promotions Director Discusses Qualities That Make Great Leaders
Along with their participation in industry conferences, the FX Promotions associates develop their leadership acumen by honing several soft skills. The Director pointed out that title and technical capability aren’t enough to produce effective managers. There are some less tangible qualities that leaders must embrace.
“Top-tier managers need to embody respect,” the Director continued. “Sometimes we get frustrated or overwhelmed, and impatience threatens to get in the way of respectful behavior. True leaders don’t let it happen. It’s a matter of integrity. When people arrive at their offices every morning knowing they will be treated with decency, they feel safe to express themselves and give their best efforts.”
Similarly, effective leaders are strong communicators. They earn the trust of their people by sharing information freely. These managers offer praise and feedback. They answer questions. Perhaps, most importantly, they listen closely to what others say. The firm’s Director noted that such interaction inspires trust and loyalty throughout the team.
“It’s also vital that leaders be humble,” concluded the Director. “This isn’t a matter of being passive. It’s being vulnerable. The best of us know how to admit when we are wrong. We know how to defer to others who may have more expertise in a given area. Research supports the assertion that humble managers are the most successful leaders. It’s certainly true for us at FX Promotions. We work hard to maintain these and other valuable traits, and we have the success to show for it!”
