A Director has a proven track record as an effective shift-leader, goal-achiever, and excellent steward of our business and team. Directors act as the Manager-on-Duty (MOD) while serving in an operational capacity, and are ultimately responsible for the overall success of the operation as a whole. Directors are granted additional responsibility and input in the decision-making process for larger complexities of the business, and are expected to identify, analyze, and solve operational challenges, communicate effectively, and provide input to discussion on increasing the capacity of their department. Directors support the Executive Leadership Team (ELT) by communicating department needs, enforcing department-wide standards and policies, and by executing ELT directives while effectively managing change and team expectations. Directors are teachers and servants at heart, and selflessly work to develop the Team Members and Leaders in their department.
