NEW HAVEN, Conn., July 27, 2016 – Frontier Communications Corporation (NASDAQ: FTR) today announced the appointment of Jim Oddo as Area General Manager for northwest Connecticut. This region, a key strategic market for Frontier, includes 42 cities and towns, including Danbury, Newtown, Waterbury, Litchfield and Torrington.
For more than 10 years, most recently as Senior Vice President of Talent and Human Resources,
Oddo has played an integral role in staffing top talent throughout Frontier’s 29-state footprint.
In his new role, he will be responsible for every aspect of customer experience for Frontier in the northwest corner, including introducing residential and business customers to Frontier’s new suite of Vantage™ products, including Video, Internet, Voice and Fiber. He will be active in community organizations and promote the development of business and sales, lead field operations, and engage employees and community stakeholders.
Oddo knows the critical role that broadband plays in a community’s economic success and to its schools, neighborhoods and other centers of civic life. Upgrading and expanding broadband service in this area is an ongoing and important initiative for Frontier, which is deploying ultra-high-speed Internet to many of the communities it serves. A long-time resident of the area, Oddo has a first-hand understanding of what customers need and want.

These practices were singled out in Vice President Joe Biden’s Ready to Work: Job-Driven Training and American Opportunity report to the President of the United States. Oddo will continue his commitment to military veterans and spouses in his new role and will continue to serve on the Board of The Workplace in Bridgeport.

Success in our work environment depends both on our ability to accomplish tasks and to manage relationships with our peers, direct reports and supervisors. Stress is inherent in relationship management because of multiple and often conflicting perspectives. However, we have far more control of our reactions than we realize. Emotions and the development of emotional competencies is the primary predictor in improving our situation. In this workshop you will 1) complete an EQ self-assessment 2) learn how to benefit from your emotions “both positive and negative” 3) examine a challenge area and re-frame your response 4) learn to recognize and reroute emotional hijacking 5) learn to better recognize and respond to others emotions 6) identify a personal action plan to increase your EQ and 6) pay it forward to apply your EQ support others. This workshop will combine the most current research on emotional intelligence with experiential and interactive activities. Required text: None Prerequisite: None CEUs: 0.6
