“The squeaky wheel gets the grease.” I said this to someone yesterday regarding some personal stuff I needed done. It was in reference to me because I had to complain loudly and often to get something done. I remember Quint Studer once talked about patients who are unnecessarily picky. He...

Reflections from Amy

By taking the time to stop and appreciate who you are and what you've achieved - and perhaps learned through a few mistakes, stumbles and losses - you actually can enhance everything about you.

This week my focus is on the little things. When we compare organizations … about 90-95% of the makeup of the organizations are the same – the DNA is similar.

Reflections from Amy

No type has everything. The introverts and thinkers, though likely to arrive at the most profound decisions, may have the most difficulty in getting their conclusions accepted.
