In other words, Radian's future is only as bright as its people. For that reason, we have developed profiles to support the qualities and characteristics that each Leader as well as each Employee should embody upon hire or via development.
The Radian Leader of the future has several key attributes that help them to succeed as an individual and as a leader of people. The leader is emotionally intelligent, present, innovative, and lives our values.
