Learning Something New Every Time

Learning Something New Every Time

Submitted by: Gilbert Garcia, ACV Supervisor Level III Being a participant in the TEAM Up program has helped me grow my career in more ways than one. It has given me so many opportunities to gain exposure in different departments within our Company. As a mentee, I was able to partner with top talent to help me in areas that I may have been struggling with in my position, and I was given best practices, training, and development to help me be more efficient in my day-to-day operations. As a mentor, I really try to inspire, coach, and pass on all the …

Being a Mentor is an Honor

Being a Mentor is an Honor

Submitted by: Victor Johnson, Director of Contact Center I have had the honor of being a mentor in the TEAM UP Program for three different mentees in the past nine months. TEAM Up is special to me because I have been mentored by a few very important people at critical stages of my life and career, so I can appreciate the value in such a program. My first mentee has grown quite a bit since we were connected back in November 2017. She was not very outspoken and was not sure how to get motivated about advancing her career. Now, she is …

Improving My Skills as a Leader and Mentor

Improving My Skills as a Leader and Mentor

Submitted by: Victor Gheorghe, District Director of Operations As a mentor I appreciate the mentoring program because, not only do I have the opportunity to impact someone’s career, but also benefit from the experience as I get to improve my own skills as a leader and mentor. Also, I get the chance to surround myself with some great people and make positive connections that, as leaders, we thrive on to continue to drive our own success.

Making a Difference

Training and Development

Training and Development

Submitted by: Cameron Gregg, General Manager I committed to the great TMX Finance Family of Companies team in 2010 and haven’t looked back since. Over my 8 years with the Company, I have been a part of many programs/webinars/podcasts targeted towards my growth and development both as a leader and employee. The training and development efforts we have at the Company, I believe, are unmatched to anyone else in this industry. The innovative ideas and training environments we have for team member growth is what also separates us from others. In my perspective, the most impactful project we have been implementing recently …

Leadership and Responsibilities

Leadership and Responsibilities

Submitted by: Angela Bilodeau, General Manager  I have been in management for many years and have been exposed to many training sessions, but none have been as supportive and beneficial as the Mentor Program provided by the TMX Finance Family of Companies. When I first started this journey of the Mentor Program I was a General Manager who thought I was ready for the next level.  What I learned was that I was a General Manager who craved knowledge, feedback and experience so that I could learn to develop the next generation of sales associates for our Company. I learned that there …

Ability to Adapt Quickly

Ability to Adapt Quickly

Submitted by: Alejandra Gonzalez, Store Manager Having the ability to adapt rather quickly once change is implemented has served me well. Throughout my time with the Company I have taken every opportunity to be a student. I’ve been privileged enough to have worked in various offices all around Southern California, but the travel wasn’t the best part. The people were. I don’t believe in luck, but I believe in preparation meeting opportunity. That exact thing happened when I was offered an opportunity to participate in the mentorship program. I’ll admit I was nervous, but I refused to turn down an …

Everyone can be Lucky or Unlucky

Submitted by: Chris Ruhter, Lead Business Analyst – Mobile App Development, United States Marines (retired) There was a firefight a few hundred meters off during the night my artillery unit, 1st Battalion, 11th Marines, left Baghdad. It was around the end of April or very early May 2003 when we got the orders to pull out. The Army was coming in and some of the Marine units who had fought and secured the city were going to start going back to Kuwait. In typical military fashion, we were first told we might get sent home soon, which started numerous rumors …

Serving People in Need

Serving People in Need

Submitted by: Kateri Flood, Store Manager, U.S. Army I am currently a Sergeant on Army Inactive Ready Reserve (IRR).
