ROCKLIN, CA / ACCESSWIRE / October 25, 2022 / Todd Leopold is a successful business professional and active member of his local community. Having worked in the public sector for more than twenty-five years, Todd takes the time to highlight the multiple leadership roles he has taken on for various government organizations. When asked for the inspiration behind his career choice, he states,
"When I was growing up, I was exposed to the local government profession, with my dad serving as a city council member for a number of years. That public service I saw inspired me to pursue a career in public service that would give back to the community in which I lived and worked. I've been fortunate to have been in a number of different local government organizations over the past 25 years, but I've always loved being involved in the "boots on the ground" work because you see the direct impact you're making in the community where you live and work. That's what has always driven me and the reason I've stayed in the public sector for the length of time that I have."
Inspired by his father, Todd's success in the public sector has fueled his motivation to continue making a positive difference. In his current role, Todd works alongside local government entities to help them overcome day-to-day challenges. Throughout the interview, Todd also touches on lessons he has learned over the last twenty-five years. When asked, "What's the most valuable lesson you've learned through the course of your career?" he responds,
"For me, it's about understanding true friendships and recognizing areas where you haven't been successful. You're going to learn more from those failures or those things that you could do better going forward than any of the successes you might have experienced previously. The other piece for me is the understanding that life is short and I want to make sure that what I'm doing is good, honorable, makes a difference, has integrity, and leaves a legacy. Those are the things I've learned over the years. Success is great, but I think that you learn more from failures or things that could have been done differently."
Todd hopes to one day take on a city or county manager role, until then he continues to make a difference in his current position. Those interested in reading the full interview can do so here.
