Accomplishments: Jennifer Zorko developed both the sales and service business development departments within a local automotive dealership group. “For each department, it took over a year of hard work to create the needed positions, job requirements, processes, pay plans, etc. I also had to personally troubleshoot what I had created monthly to ensure the employees could thrive and succeed in each department.”
Leadership style: “I always make it a point to listen. As a leader you can easily get sucked into the idea that everyone is going to listen and follow your directions. I have found it is completely the opposite, and as I have listened to the great ideas, struggles and success stories, I have learned more about how to connect with the people I work with. In return, they trust me and are willing to listen when I have direction to give them.”
Daily motivation: “My two boys. I have been a single mother for nearly seven years, and I have always wanted to show my kids that I can do anything I want—regardless of the challenges ahead of me… I can create my future, and so can they. I want to be the best role model and inspiration for my boys, and that definitely motivates me to make great things happen.”
