Jason Tienor, CEO, president and director of Telkonet, Inc., has led a diverse career with leadership roles ranging from successful entrepreneur to CEO and experience in both public and private companies. Tienor attributes his success to recognizing that every situation creates a new opportunity.

“I’ve had numerous mentors over my career and realize that I’ve learned and retained valuable lessons from each and every one of them. The combination of these lessons creates who we are, and hopefully who we are going to be.

“Leaders recognize an opportunity in any situation and learn from it. They continue to apply lessons learned in their future activities, continuously building on the growth that’s come before.

“To be good leaders, we strive to put a solid team in place. A team that hopefully is better than we are. We then provide them with the right tools and the responsibility to make decisions. Lastly, we make ourselves available to help them in any way they require.

“With this in place, we build a culture of nurturing and support. We work to provide an environment of learning and development and to foster the ability to recognize the opportunity in every situation.

“Finally, we encourage communication and the sharing and recognition of these opportunities and the successes they create. In doing so, we continue to nurture culture and corporate morale.

“If we’ve done our job as good leaders, we should see the benefits from continued personal growth of our staff and increasing corporate success.”
