Meet Outliers Consulting Solutions’ twenty-one-year-old Assistant Manager, Isreal Gibby! Having joined the team in October of 2019, Gibby is inching towards his two-year anniversary, and as we approach that date, we have an exciting announcement in the works.
Isreal Gibby is heading towards a promotion to Management with Outliers CS! In celebration of this monumental achievement, we spoke with Gibby to discuss what it takes to jump from assistant management to management, and his advice for those who hope to do the same.
Where did it all begin? How did your business career begin?
“I went straight into the work force. I learned quickly that hard work and determination were required to succeed without a degree! Since then, I’ve grown so much, and I plan on opening my own sales and marketing firm in 2022!”
What makes you so great at your job?
“I would have to say my relentless mindset to overcome all challenges in my path. More than that, I am team-oriented, which is kind of a requirement in this line of work. In my work and in life, helping others is the only way to advance!”
What values are important to you in a teammate or hiree?
“Integrity is the most important attribute someone can possess in my opinion.”
Now that you’re an Assistant Manager, how would you describe your leadership style?
“I like to describe myself as a pacesetter. If I’m not doing it, how can I expect it from someone else?”
How do you respond to criticism?
“I take it genuinely with a smile!”
What is your favorite thing about your company?
“The company culture and team environment we have created is hands down my favorite part of the business.”
What drew you to your company in the first place?

Are you a planner? What are your short-term and long-term goals?
“My short-term goal is to be in management by 2022. My long-term is to provide jobs and affordable housing for those in need through a non-profit organization.”
What business advice would you give to people hoping to start a career?
“Learn sales. Sales is at the front of every successful company. First, learn to sell yourself, then if the product brings value, you’ll have no issues selling it.”
What do you feel is your greatest accomplishment to date?
“Finding a career with such immense growth at such a young age.”
How do you measure your own performance and success?
“If I can beat yesterday’s performance and just be 10% better, I’m winning.”
Who inspires you?
“My boss, Shilan. She has shown me that obstacles are merely stepping stones to get to your goals.”
Do you consider yourself a spiritual or religious person?
“I believe in treating others how you want to be treated.”
What is your advice to others looking to overcome their circumstances?
“Everyone is dealt a hand of cards in the game of life. It’s what you choose to do with your cards that will determine where you end up.”
That’s our guy, in all his glory! Congratulations, Isreal. We couldn’t be prouder to stand alongside you as you continue to lead the Outliers CS team to success.
