“Every decision that I make as a business owner, I want it to be through the lens of people first. What’s best for not just my people but also for the people we’re working with and contracting with are trusting us by hiring us. What’s best for them as well.” – Bryce Thompson, owner of Cord Construction Services and Managing Partner of the Community Through Beer (CTB) Group. CTB Group includes The Patriarch in Edmond, Social Capital in downtown OKC, The Joinery in Bricktown, 1884 in Edmond and The Standard in Norman.
Thompson was recently appointed to the new Oklahoma Workforce Commission, which was created to coordinate and align all the stakeholders in the workforce ecosystem within our state. He also strongly believes in the value of suits for every university student-athlete, specifically his alma mater, the University of Oklahoma.
“If you put the people first, being successful comes easy. People over projects, people over profit, people over anything else.”
We discuss how to put people first for a successful business, getting past imposter syndrome to take on new challenges, managing multiple businesses in different verticals by empowering employees, knowing your why and the importance of feeling good about yourself to do your best work.
