Taking Ownership

One of Daxko’s core values is ownership. It’s something team members take to heart and a trait that I observe in my teammates on a daily basis.

Joining Daxko, I was unaware of the significance of ownership in the culture – not because it was not expressed, but because I had not experienced it before. I realized that I needed to step up my game in this area to be successful at Daxko and in my role. I can say that I have significantly overcome this hurdle! A specific anecdote of how I stepped up the ownership game: I helped a client edit a custom report in a way that seemed impossible. After completing the rather intensive coding for a calculated column in the report, I felt as if I made a significant contribution in an area of which I, at first, did not believe I was capable. It was a great feeling of accomplishment for me! I was successful at a tough project, and I helped contribute to a customer’s success.

I’ve gone from being a brand new team member who, every day, thought “How in the world am I going to remember all this?” to feeling well-equipped. I’ve found a rhythm even though there’s still a lot to learn. I am grateful for my time, thus far, and look forward to continually grow in and contribute to the Daxko Nation.
