970. A Day in the Life: What's It Really Like to Be a Human Resources Consultant?
“The most influential person in my life growing up was the choir director at the San Ramon Valley High School in Danville, California–Ken Abrams. Ken saw a lot of leadership capability in me along with the grit and determination to achieve whatever I set out to do. I was president of our choir of over 250 people for two years. I also was invited to join an elite choir of chamber singers when I was just a sophomore, which had only happened two times before in the 80-year history of the school. Ken taught me the fundamentals of leadership: the power of hard work, showing up on time, sharing tough lessons, setting good boundaries in all my relationships and more. His insights and experience inspired me to be a leader in every aspect of my life. Ken’s wisdom continues to guide me today and he remains a dear friend and ally.”
