Jeffrey A. Lettau, CGM

Jeffrey’s intense curiosity of how things worked started at an early age and  manifested as a need to take things apart and put them back together.  He called this “fixing things.”  Naturally, this has resulted in a 30 year career in facilities and grounds management, the ultimate job for taking things apart, putting things back together. The latter portion of this career has been in the management role where Jeffrey discovered the ultimate employment truth: the very best way to develop a high performing team starts in the interview process!  This presentation shares a hiring and interview process developed over many years.  A process taken apart and put back together many times in an attempt to “fix” how we hire the very best.
