Next month, Radio Ink will once again spotlight the Radio industry's most successful women in our business. Our Most Influential Women in Radio issue is now in year number 13 and we are honored to highlight the achievements of these women year after year. A big benefit for our readers is that everyone who makes it into the issue discusses how they achieved success, mistakes they've made (so you can avoid them) and steps you can take to become successful faster. Today we would like to highlight the accomplishments of Clear Channel Regional Market Manager Alene Grevey who we caught up with in Charleston, South Carolina. Her success in radio has a lot to do with setting goals, never burning a bridge and being passionate about what she does. Congratulations to Alene Grevey, one of radio's Most Influential Women.
"The best advice I can share about reaching the top and achieving goals is to have a plan and stay focused on achieving the plan. You can?t get to the top without goals. Goal setting is a critical piece to achieving success. Anticipating changes in a plan is critical. Simmering reactions to a minimum and getting into action is essential when change occurs. Surround yourself with people who have the attitude that anything?s possible and the aptitude to get the job done."
"If you step on people to get to the top, it will come back to haunt you in the end. Never burn a bridge. Treat others they way you want to be treated. Always maintain a balance between your career and who you are as a person. When you're certain you are correct, fight for what you believe. Develop the ability to step back and access the course of action and or situation ahead. Recognize what personality types you are dealing with and have the agility to adapt your style and approach quickly. Don?t assume anything, ask questions, and listen more.
"It?s no secret, I love my work. I?m passionate about what I do, the company I work for and the people that surround me. It?s real, not an act. I tell my staff, the day you aren?t leaning forward and eager to start a new day, move on. I?m extremely choosy with whom I hire and eager to see them succeed and move up in our organization. You have the choice to be an administrator, a manager or a leader. Leaders succeed. I am a leader in many ways. I maintain a key focus on results not effort. Speed to action is critical and fast decision making is essential."
