Leaders Eat Last | Part 1: Our Need to Feel Safe

Welcome to Part 1 of our blog series, #LeadWithOptus. Over the next nine weeks, we will be reading and sharing feedback from the book Leaders Eat Last by Simon Sinek. Optus employees have been asked to read and reflect on the ideas in Leaders Eat Last to help them challenge their thinking and develop their leadership skills. Here at Optus, we believe that while everyone may not be in a leadership role in the traditional sense, everyone can lead and help advance the company.

Optus Employee Spotlight: Kaitlyn McLendon

Optus sets you up for success. I have only had part-time jobs and internships before Optus, so I don’t have much to compare it to; however, Optus has been the best about providing me with a plethora of resources for me to do my job as well as a path to grow within the company and my own career.

Optus Employee Spotlight: Clayton Richardson

My first day was September 11, 2017. On December 4, 2017, I was nominated as the employee of the month. I didn’t understand how I was able to get this award when I wasn’t employee by Optus yet. Right after we finished the meeting, I was called into HR, and I was offered the full-time position. I also have taken on other roles within the company.
