Under the Microscope: Bob Drovdlic, Team Leader, tGCP
What experiences you had that have shaped your vision?
I had to learn how to manage people in a very short period of time. I jumped into management theory with both feet and read and listened to everything I could. I fell in love with all things performance related.
Why do you feel it is so important for company cultures to be branded? How does one brand a culture?
It is the most overlooked recruiting tool. People want to work for companies that they care about. The easiest way to do this is to have a culture that people know and understand and care about. You brand it by everyone in the company living it minute-to-minute.
Where do you envision tGCP heading in the future?
We will continue to grow and serve our clients well. We know what we are and we will never get away from that. We are people experts and can help people change so they are better at their job and ultimately make their companies more profitable.
What are your proudest contributions in the field of talent management?
I can quantify and observe the changes individuals made as a result of my working with them. In the end, that is all we can ask to be proud of.
What do you do in your spare time?
I try to keep a level of fitness up, but mostly just try to be a happy family guy enjoying time with my two boys, ages 4 and 6.
What is your number one philosophy that you try to teach all of your clients?
Change and success is about making many small steps every day, and being just a little better today than you were yesterday.
