Key Quotes:

  • “The traits that we look for are someone that is driven, outspoken, competitive, confident. But, those are all the ‘nice to haves’. The ‘need to have’…the most important trait, that is an absolute non-negotiable, ‘need to have’, is a high level of figure it out factor.” – Jackson Dalton
  • “I’m a perfectionist. So, there’s always going to be that. Don’t show it to me because if you do, I’m going to find some ways that we can improve it. But, the overall arching mission is to take the hill, get it done, figure it out. You have the autonomy to figure out how it is that you’re going to do that.” – Jackson Dalton
  • “My love language is words of affirmation. I’m a cheerleader. I like to encourage them, prop them up. My other love language is constructive criticism.” – Jackson Dalton
