Leadership Insights – Mike Webster Podcast

Recently Freije-RSC CEO, Mike Webster, sat down with TrueU. Mike talked about the value of employee referrals in his business as a way to grow his talent base at Freije-RSC. What makes the company you work for today a company you want to refer people to join? What do you value about your company or job?

Mike talked about how he values the “circles of people” he hangs out with. People who think and act differently than him and people who strive to learn. The circles he participates in include those focused on family, faith, and business. Are there professional organizations or peer groups that you have thought about joining? What is holding you back? What do you need to do to participate in those types of activities?

How do you work on your “whole person” as Mike described? What needs more attention in your life?

Listen to Leadership Insights from trueU member, Mike Webster, as he talks to trueU about improving retention through supporting both personal and professional employee development.
