The Power of Grandparents

Posted on January 10, 2014 at 12:11pm 0 Comments

I had the pleasure over the holiday season of having a generational “Oreo” moment. I got that sweet creamy feeling inside seeing the generation above me and below me spending time together.

Employee Retention & Wisdom

Posted on May 7, 2013 at 9:45am 0 Comments

There is so much information in our world. So much of it is rubbish. Have you ever dwelled on something you read or learned and wished everyone knew it too?

Have you ever heard the old saying, “I don’t want to train my employees because they leave?” The troubling corollary to this statement is that “I prefer not to train them so they stay.” Yikes!
