What is the biggest challenge facing leaders today?
Building a team of qualified and dedicated employees that are working toward the primary objective of fulfilling the needs of our customers. Glenny Glass Company has a state of the Art 119,000 sq ft facility with industry best equipment. But without a trained work force these production assets are useless.
Who is your mentor? Why and how did this person impact your life?
My father, Rufus Smith. Dad was a visionary and inventor. He pioneered the use of disposables in the Medical Supply Industry in the 60’s and invented the flexible straw so Patients in Bed could more comfortably take a drink.
He taught me to take logically viable risks and not to be afraid of failure. “The most successful people are ones that fail the most” To live life to the fullest and to love your neighbor.
What is your biggest fear?
Actually I have two major concerns: First, the continued excess’s, corruption and overspending of all Government entities. And Second, the ethical and moral decay of our society. We all need God to be our guide.
