Lesson One: Every family member earns their position. No free rides.
Parents are parents forever. That’s a given. As parents we want to give our children every opportunity to be successful. Why not? We have nurtured them, guided them, and taught them in hopes that one day they will grow up and be successful and contribute to society. We have also protected them. We don’t want any harm to come of them. No hurt feelings, no life setbacks.Read More›
Have you ever watched a dog laying casually in the yard when suddenly, something catches his attention? A squirrel! He’s no longer interested in basking in the sunlight because he’s going to GET THAT SQUIRREL! He stops what he was doing and chases the squirrel. And most often he doesn’t catch it. Still, he stands at the bottom of the tree for a good amount of time, wondering (I’m guessing here) if he can climb the tree…or hoping the squirrel will magically slip off the branch and fall into his mouth.Read More›
When you have a question about anything, where do you turn? Why is my car making this noise? What does your cough really mean? What are these bumps on my child’s arm? What should you do if your boss won’t…? Most of us turn to Google. Or we ask Alexa or Siri. We end up getting so much information; sometimes too much.

For decades, we’ve known that we not only need to deliver a quality product or service, but that we need to focus on the customer experience. But what we have unintentionally ignored is the fact that employees are expecting the same. We’re not talking about massage therapists and bowling alleys necessarily; but employees want to feel good working for your company.
It’s not just about culture or employee engagement. It’s not just the small benefits or perks you offer. It’s about designing work for and around the people who work for you. It’s about making sure your team wants to come to work. Making sure they actually enjoy working for your company. For over ten years now, Glassdoor has released an annual list of the “Best Places to Work” based upon the overall employee experience. According to an article by Forbes, the factors that contribute to this ranking are “overall satisfaction, career opportunities, compensation, work-life balance, and business outlook.” They also include a ranking for each company’s CEO and even the interview process.
Working with a leadership team recently, we spent some time discussing how to retain our best recruits and employees. We found that in this particular case, employees were voluntarily leaving within ninety days. And we figured out that it was because of the employee experience.Read More›
