How Leaders Describe a Typical Day at Work

District Manager ,

Capital One

I get the opportunity to interact with great people who enjoy helping community members with their financial needs. I celebrate associates' successes like when they get great feedback from customers about their service experience or recognize work done to acheive a particular goal. I also get to teach associates techniques that might help them do better in their job. I also get to talk with our customers and hear how much they like banking with our bank.

They would see a lot of interaction with the associates in our company that make us so great. Hopefully they would learn something new as would I, and we would have a great time together.
