Mike And Alison After Hours: George Hall — Linq
The latest episode of the Mike And Alison After Hours podcast features George Hall, president of Linq.
Do you know why it’s important to keep your technology patched and updated? The co-hosts kicked off this week’s episode of Mike And Alison After Hours by sharing a little important knowledge about keeping technology (both at the office and at home) well maintained.
Despite how advanced modern software is, it is still designed by humans, and the fact is that humans still make mistakes. That’s why much of the software you rely on to get work done every day could have flaws — or “exploits” — that leave you vulnerable to security breaches.
Many of the most common malware and viruses used by cybercriminals today are based on exploiting those programming flaws; to address this, developers regularly release software patches and updates to fix those flaws and protect the users. This is why it’s important for you to keep your Windows applications and systems up to date.
After talking through the necessity of patching and updating, Mike and Allison welcomed their featured guest: George Hall. Check out the full video for the complete interview:
Get To Know George Hall And Linq
George Hall Is the President of Linq, a managed service provider for all corporate cellular needs. Linq provides a range of key services, including live customer care, MDM support, custom billing and reporting, all while clients keep ownership of their account and devices.
After explaining what Linq is and what they do, George talked about his favorite book, Who Moved My Cheese? He has found it to be a valuable resource as manager, teaching an important lesson about the inevitability of change.
“There’s always change, so I always make my management team, anybody who’s new to the team has to read it,” says George.
Mike then moved the conversation to the topic of leadership and authenticity. He shared a story from when he and George used to work together, and how George never wore ties because it would not have been authentic for him to do so. The lesson was that how you look should reflect who you are.
George’s instinct for authenticity is a product of his career and upbringing. His father taught him the basics of management, accounting and other business practices while running a successful convenience store.
“I fell in love with being an entrepreneur by watching my dad,” says George.
In the course of his career, George has honed his approach to leadership. He is especially invested in the training process for the managers on his team. George believes that being a good leader means admitting you don’t know everything, and then surrounding yourself with good people that can fill in the gaps. By committing yourself to continue learning more and more, you never stop improving as a leader.
