One of the best parts of the week each year is the series of individual moments I have with our team. Quiet sidebar conversations about work, life, career aspirations, or challenges happening right then.
It is a privilege to have these moments actually. They are important to the team members who are kind enough to value my opinion; and they are important to me because the team trusts me enough to be involved in what's happening in their world.
That's not just "work." That's trust, and respect, and how it should be.
During our company photo shoot I was chatting with one of the other executives here, and they said to me...
"...just look at our group...we have an unbelievable team of people here now...I'm not just saying it...
they truly are incredible..."
...and that's one of the things I love about being a member of the leadership team here at Kinetix.
Our employees are not FTEs, or staff, or commodities.
They are people, who work hard, have good values, and add to our culture far beyond their performance of 18% productivity growth.
They are people who we have the privilege to have on the team.
How About You
How do you see the members of your team? Are they replaceable, or maybe simply a seat that needs to be filled? Or, are they much more than that?
I'd love to hear from you.
