Meet the Team

Expanding the Realm of Possible

Core #1 – Deliver with Excellence. Be Accountable for Results.

Excellence means we give everything we do our very best effort, always keeping our clients and our candidates as the reason we do what we do. That combination keeps us moving at the speed of hired. Our path of excellence involves utilizing proven tools and keeping ourselves and each other accountable.

We organize our business along a Business Operating System that provides standards, processes and consistency so our projects are managed to agreed upon priorities with a sense of urgency in all we do because candidates depend on us to help them find work, and clients depend on us to fill their key roles.

We set SMART goals and discuss the elements of each as a team. With those checks and balances we are assured our goals are indeed measurable for success and relevant to move our business forward at what we call, the Speed of Hired. (do you want to expand on that?)

We organize and attend regular status meetings as well as leadership meetings to hold each other accountable.  We have the courage to initiate open discussions of issues and roadblocks, the courage to speak up and a passion to contribute to the solution.

Core #2 – Empower, Inspire, and Grow.

At Taurean, individuals are empowered to grow. Self-improvement is at the forefront of our success and we believe in and encourage continuous self-improvement. WE are committed to personal and professional growth, connecting as a team, and embracing what’s unique in all of us and using that to enhance the team. This naturally creates a culture of leadership.

Core #3 – Lead.

Every employee at Taurean, from the CEO to the Office Administrator is a Leader.  As true Leaders we strive to:

  • Add to our capabilities by reaching out for coaching, mentors, and continued education.
  • Hold ourselves and our colleagues responsible for continuous improvement and the creation and execution of stretch goals.
  • Utilize our strengths to help develop strengths in our colleagues.
  • Create learning opportunities from our missteps as well as our successes.
  • Praise publicly and redirect missteps one on one.
  • Have the tough conversations and resolve misunderstandings with an open mind and an open heart.
  • Recognize and embrace our differences
  • And delegate when appropriate and add to our own responsibilities as our strengths grow.

Encouraging leadership in each other, our business organically attracts great talent, builds our core capabilities, and inspires our candidates and clients to do the same. 

Core #4 – Be Involved. Be Ambitious. Be Creative. Be Outrageous. Celebrate Success.

This is what creates our team culture…everybody, at all levels of responsibility participating and contributing to new ideas that help Taurean expand the realm of possible.

With everybody actively involved in the development of a positive team culture, creativity flourishes, risks are taken and the outrageous is attempted. 

We are curious and embrace our creativity. Outrageous ideas are encouraged and when we all agree to move forward, and it comes time to implement, we are outrageous as a team and make it happen.

We work with each other to collaborate on our ideas, accept feedback freely, and we return the favor to encourage and provide feedback for our colleagues’ ideas

Every day each of us is responsible to bring our passion and enthusiasm to work. And to expand that outward by volunteering, sitting on boards, and giving back to our IT community. 

And we always celebrate our successes, big and small.

Core #5 – One Team. One Vision.

We are individuals who come together each day to create a stronger team.  We respect each other professionally and personally.  And that builds trust and unity. We engage in open, honest, and direct communication.  We proactively speak our purpose and drive collaboration within the team.  That means considering each other and our team’s goals as we develop our individual goals. We think ahead and realign to the team vision.

We proactively seek opportunities to support each other.

We respect a work and home life balance and encourage each other in our personal endeavors as well as our business endeavors.

We trust that each of us is capable and will deliver on our promises, and we give each other that space to do so.

Christine Heinrich

Recruiting Manager and Talent Sourceress

Hi, I’m Christine Heinrich, Recruiting Manager and Talent Sourceress for Taurean Consulting Group. I am a Unicorn Hunter with a passion for building relationships with candidates and clients, while helping them find the perfect match! I have been recruiting IT professionals across the Las Vegas valley since 2014 and cannot imagine a more rewarding career. My absolute favorite thing about recruiting is the phone calls I get to make to my candidates telling them they got the job! I have lived in Las Vegas for over 20 years and enjoy spending my free time with my amazing family. We love the outdoors, especially swimming in the pool, having family and friends over to watch movies, VGK and Steelers games, listening to music, and the occasional camping trip (if you can call it that – we have a trailer, not a tent)!
