The purpose of this written interview is to get to know you better as a person and a professional. The questions are intended to make you think about who you are, why you want to work with me, and how you can be successful in this role.

Speaking of this role - you are applying for the Operations and Program Manager position*.

(Depending on your experience and proven abilities to learn and grow, you may be hired as Operations and Program Assistant. If this is the case, then I would expect that you will strive to become the "Manager" as soon as possible. Don't worry. If you don't think you have the experience to be the "Manager" yet, but you are willing to put in the time and stretch yourself, then I will give you every opportunity to exceed my expectations.)

Here's what that it means to be the Operations and Program Manager:

Operations - you will be responsible for the day-to-day operations of the business.

This includes:
- On-boarding clients that enroll in our various coaching programs and digital products
- Designing world-class experiences for our clients that help them achieve results
- Developing industry leading content that provides value for our audience

Programs - you will assist in the design, development, and production of various coaching programs and digital products that will be marketed and sold to construction business owners, executives, and managers.

Here are the duties of the Operations and Program Manager:
- Schedule client coaching calls
- Manage the execution of programs
- Produce digital content (written, graphics, video and audio) and the ability to use the various forms of software these types of content require
- Assist Shawn in coordinating speaking gigs and corporate training events
- Research digital content and assist in copy writing, editing, and publishing

Here's how we are going to measure your success:
- Tracking and meeting the schedule of the content calendar
- Production of profitable programs, projects, and products
- Establishing and meeting your "Learning Curve" - you will be required to set and meet quarterly goals

Does this job description intimidate you? Be honest, it probably should. It's a lot to take in. But I promise, for the right person, this is going to be a lot of fun.

You will create your own opportunities. There is no safety net. If we don't hunt it down, kill it and drag it back to the cave, then we don't eat.

If I offer you the job, and you decide to accept, then I promise I will do everything in my power to make you successful...if you make the same promise to me.

One last thing before you dig into the written interview.

I have discovered my calling. I am on a mission to change the way the world views the trades by providing world-class education to the construction industry, participating with my clients in the success of their businesses, and inspiring leaders to achieve greatness.

I have an obligation to use my God-given gifts and help others succeed.

I care very deeply about my audience, my customers, and my clients.

If you would like to join me on this mission, then please answer the questions below.
