I put real effort into staying close to my team. When I joined DISCO, I scheduled meetings with each team member and I meet with each new hire class. They know I have an open door policy and will support their growth at DISCO. I do weekly standups to share recognition and updates, as well as hold quarterly focus groups to gauge how we are doing.
