Dave Anderson has been the single greatest manager I have had in my career. I have had numerous managers and have seen how different leadership philosophies play out on teams. What sets Dave apart is his sheer commitment to the happiness and success of his people, both personally and professionally. He sets a vision for his team from the very beginning and gets buy in from everyone to make that vision a reality. Everyone on Dave’s team felt engaged and committed to its success. Not only did we set our expectations, we were encouraged to exceed them, and do it as a team. We WERE the team to beat with a true ”team spirit” mentality. I am now pursuing a manager position and can only hope to be as respected as Dave Anderson. He truly sets the bar high for leadership.
