Amy's Reflections

“Leadership is not about titles, positions or flowcharts. It is about one life influencing another.”~ John C.

Notes from Steve

At the quarterly employee meetings we’re showing homemade videos that we made several years ago. We laughed a lot making these, and we based them around our standards of behaviors.

Notes from Steve

A friend had a house band party in Des Moines last Saturday night. There were two 45 minutes sets by the band and then a couple of breaks. We all brought cool beer and wine plus a snack to share. It was like a hipster potluck – I was smiling...

Making the Rounds with Dr. Hurt

The Arena "It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The CREDIT belongs to man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat...
