As a certified WBENC organization, we have been proud to operate as a 100% leading lady team — until now! Brady joined our employee team this past year as one of our Relationship Managers. We are excited about growing our team and inviting diversified voices to the table of our organization. Brady is San Diego based, like much of our leadership team, and takes full advantage of living in The Golden State by practicing hobbies like surfing and mountain biking. Keep scrolling to see what he loves most about his role and what things he can’t live without during his workflow!
Tell us about yourself! What is your role and how long have you been with ttcInnovations?
My name is Brady Grover, and I am a Relationship Manager here at ttcInnovations. I have been with the company since November 2020, and I am based in North County San Diego.
I am happily married to my best friend, Emily, and we have two beautiful young daughters — ages two and five. Our little family would not be complete without our sweet, kid-resilient German Shepherd, Luna (who our oldest daughter lovingly nicknamed Lunacorn).
What is your favorite thing about your role?
There are many different aspects about my role that I love, but I believe the most important and meaningful one to me is building relationships with our clients based on trust, respect, and a genuine desire to help them. I love getting to know the clients I work with and cultivating long-term relationships based on mutual respect.
Coffee or tea?
BOTH! I enjoy my daily morning black coffee, followed by copious amounts of iced tea (I probably need to start scaling back my iced tea consumption). Either way, bring on the caffeine!
What does life look like outside of work?
When I am not working, I enjoy spending time with my family and going on fun weekend excursions, whether that be camping, hiking, visiting friends, or taking beach trips. I have recently become an avid runner, and I am currently training to participate in my first running competition, which will be a 50K ultramarathon trail race in San Diego. I also enjoy surfing, mountain biking, reading, and playing guitar whenever I can find the time.
Your three favorite desk must-haves.
The most meaningful desk item I have, aside from family pictures, is my grandpa’s military burial flag. I like to have it next to me on my desk as a reminder to stop and appreciate the life I live. I was very close to my grandpa, who proudly served his country. My two other must-haves are not nearly as sentimental, but nonetheless help me get through the day. First are my Skullcandy Bluetooth headphones, which ttcInnovations so kindly provided, and the second is my cell phone charger. What can I say? I’m a millennial!
Which core value of ttcInnovations resonates the most with you and why?
While all core values are important and meaningful, hands down the one that resonates with me most is having integrity. In both my personal and professional lives, I try to make sure that my behavior and decisions are in line with my moral compass and ethical standards.
Your professional superpower?
I believe that my professional superpower is the ability to be empathetic and put myself in the shoes of both the company and of our clients. In doing so, I am able to forge strong and trusting relationships and make decisions that are in the best interests of ttcInnovations and our clients.
What’s your go-to productivity trick?
This is an interesting question as I have recently made a change in my approach to productivity. In the past, I would strive to be a multitasker extraordinaire, often switching back-and-forth between projects and tasks. While there are times when multitasking is necessary and inevitable, I have recently shifted my outlook on multitasking in general and have started taking the approach of one task or project at a time. In doing so, I find that I am often much more efficient with my time, more productive, and I produce higher outputs — not to mention reducing mistakes and stress. I take this approach by constantly prioritizing and reprioritizing my tasks and goals.
