We've been placing a spotlight on some of Incept's finest team members! Today we bring you Paul Tucker, one of Incept's Account Growth Specialists:
WHAT DO YOU DO HERE AT INCEPT?
I work in the Grows division, helping companies achieve new growth, whether it be through lead generation, driving attendance for events or even as a customer support agent.
WHAT DO YOU ENJOY MOST ABOUT WORKING IN THE LEAD GENERATION INDUSTRY?
I get a lot of enjoyment out of helping others. If I can put our clients in front of a warm lead and take some of the stress off of their shoulders, then I’m happy to do so.
WHAT DO YOU ENJOY MOST ABOUT WORKING AT INCEPT?
I think one of the things that has impressed me the most about Incept is that they understand that you have family and encourage you to do what you need to take care of them or be there for them. If I need to stay home and care for my family, they want you to do that.
WHY DO RELATIONSHIPS MATTER TO YOU?
I’m a pretty social guy all around so it’s always been pretty easy for me to relate to someone, whether it’s a co-worker or a prospect I’m calling. I think in this business that comes in really handy. If I can build even a small relationship with a prospect, it makes the transition to the client that much easier and increases the opportunity for them to close a sale.
In regards to work, having established some sort of relationship with everyone on our team helps us hold each other accountable. We can be comfortable enough with each other to have healthy and constructive conversations to help ourselves improve as individuals and as a division.
WHAT HAS BEEN THE MOST IMPACTFUL RELATIONSHIP YOU’VE HAD HERE?
This is a tough one for me to answer because there have been quite a few people that I’ve been able to talk with and learn from. I would say one of the most impactful relationships I have here is with my co-worker Cory Carney. This was one of the first jobs that I’ve had where I wasn’t referred by a friend or someone I already knew. I truly came in here without knowing anyone. Cory and I quickly found some common interest and that connection allowed me to get more comfortable in my new environment rather quickly. That helped me establish a bond with the team as a whole and feel like “one of the gang” since day one.
HOW HAS THE FOCUS ON HAVING PRODUCTIVE CONVERSATIONS IMPACTED YOUR RELATIONSHIPS OUTSIDE OF WORK?
One thing that has helped me is the phrase, “get comfortable with being uncomfortable.” This has helped me in my personal relationships because sometimes you have to have uncomfortable conversations. Finding the right way to have that conversation makes it a lot easier and in the long run, leads to healthier relationships.
WHAT’S YOUR FAVORITE THING YOU DID IN THE LAST YEAR?
The most exciting thing for me was welcoming our daughter into the world. She was born in August of 2017 and she has been a blessing for our family. It truly is amazing to see how much she grows and how much she learns every single day!
LET'S PLAY TWO TRUTHS AND A LIE:
- My favorite NFL team is the Denver Broncos.
- I’ve lived in 4 different states.
- I am a vegetarian.
Can you guess which one is a lie?
