Extra Points: New Blood

Dan_Weedin_022Last week was wonderful as the newest member of my family was born. Our granddaughter made her grand entrance on Tuesday and I met her for the first time the next day. It’s one of those special moments you always remember. Barb and I were at my daughter and son-in-law’s house when they came home with the baby and video recorded her big sister being so excited to “onboard” her to her new home. I’m sure we will use that video to remind them that they love each other in about 13 years.

There are many grand entrances in our personal lives, and we normally treat them with the aplomb they deserve. How about the grand entrances in our professional lives?

How do we commemorate new clients and employees? Are we welcoming and warm? Do we reward ourselves when we accomplish something great or even when we do something “normal” extremely well? Do we “ring the bell” when others win the day or achieve goals or milestones?

It’s easy to get caught up in the day to day of work and business life. Just like it’s easy to get caught up in the day to day of our personal lives. One of the secrets of great success is to celebrate people and moments; accomplishments and achievement; and do it in a way that can be shared by all.  When you do that, you’ll see your business grow just like a family. And in those moments of conflict and crisis, like a strong family your business will not only survive but thrive together.

Quote of the Day:
