How do I see my role/responsibility as a leader?

“As a principal and manager, I work to ensure my team of engineers and drafting staff are sufficiently given resources to efficiently and accurately design structures and components for all different styles of projects. The various teams and team members make Heyer what it is.  A company of creativity, integrity, mutual understanding, and great dedication to our projects, each other, and those we work with and serve.”
