    Kobe Bogaert and Amy Vodarek speak with Paymon Hamidi, CEO of Infracore, an Information Technology Consulting and Managed Services firm founded in 2003. Their conversation focuses on the three major areas where Paymon recognized his team needed support in order to start acting less like a group and more like a team: communication that sparks action, filtering negative information, and letting go.
    In today’s conversation, we explore:
    How to improve communication in a growing company
    When and where to be transparent and when to hold back information
    Building trust in a business partnership
    How to engage in “breakdown conversations” or what Paymon prefers to call “conversations for a better future”
    How to build strong organizational culture through values alignment, guiding principles, and capacity management
    About Paymon Hamidi: Paymon co-founded Infracore in 2003 to provide best-in-class IT services to organizations struggling with IT issues due to lack of expertise and/or capacity. Throughout his career, Paymon has focused his efforts toward mentoring IT professionals and cultivating a culture centered around mutual respect and personal growth.
