“It’s not business, it’s personal”

Posted · Add Comment

When I am talking with our associates here at Yoder’s. The question I ask myself more than any other question is: Does he/she care? It is the question I ask of the Installer, Load Puller, Sales Person, Accounting and whoever else works at Yoder’s. I feel like it is the most important question I can ask. People who care have the biggest impact because they take it personal.

People who care can be trained and taught the system and will become a part of the culture of Yoder’s! People who take it personal want excellence!

It’s too easy to blame the organization and the system and the bottom line for decisions that a person would never be willing to take responsibility for.

Whenever you can, work with people who take it personally.

Thoughts:

We want to stand up and make difference and we want to sit down and hide and be safe.

We want to help others and we want to keep more for ourselves.
