Quick Retention Tips!


1. Your Laughter is contagious – let them hear you roar! Good moods affect others in a positive way and bad moods infect others negatively. (From Love ’em or Lose ’em!)


2. The more information you put into your brain, the more likely you are to come up with new ideas! Continue your own learning journey by attending at least one conference a year.


3. Randomly ask an employee, “What do you like least about your job?” More than likely, you’ll be able to make a difference in that person’s life today!

Quotes to Ponder This Week:


1. “A leader is someone who will take you to a destination you would not go to by yourself.”

~Joel Barker


2. “Human beings need to be recognized and rewarded for special efforts. You don’t even have to give them much. What they want is tangible proof that you really do care about the job they’re doing. The reward is really just a symbol of that.”

~Tom Cash; Sr VP, American Express
