Tyler Cerny, Great Lakes Chapter president

Tyler Cerny, owner of Strata Design and president of the Great Lakes Chapter, spent his 15 minute talk explaining to us how he, as a company leader, used positive energy and strong logical reasoning to help his employees take the company from here to there. Having entered the industry right before the economy crash in 2008, Tyler shared some of the wisdom he gained from keeping his company afloat in questionable economic times. Tyler told us that sometimes you have to make people uncomfortable where they are, in order to motivate them to be where they could be– in his case, a stronger running, and healthy, company environment.
