I have been working at Standard TV and Appliance full-time
We all know the old cliche 'the grass is always greener on the other side of the fence'...From my experience the grass has been green since I started working here 15 years ago. I started in sales at Standard and was later encouraged to advance my career into management. I have been very fortunate to work with so many diverse people and projects throughout the years...Through all this, I have grown as a person, as a manager, and as a business owner. I have worked at several companies in my working career and I have to say that I've never seen such a great concentration of the most exceptional minds in the industry; including the owner himself. We have learned so much from each other and have thrive together as a team. Acknowledgement to the owner: *The owner deserves to be acknowledge for making so many personal sacrifices to build this business and for helping employ so many people/families. *He has helped/encouraged so many people advance their careers internally...I'm one of them. *He gives to many local charities, family in need, employees in need, etc.. *Thank you for keeping our yearly Christmas party and Picnic party undisturbed even through bad times...many of us and our families look forward to these annual events.
All companies have challenges and it would be easy for me to point my finger at someone/some situation/some policy/some thing that is wrong....Focusing on whats right and whats working has worked out better for me. A 'Company' is made up of many individuals. The work atmosphere and company culture has always been the responsibility of each individual and each one of us have the power to influence our work atmosphere. The company unity and leadership is not perfect but it works and has allowed this private local company to stand the test of time and weathered many economic and competitive storms. Focus on whats right and you'll likely to get more of it.
Advice to Management
The best way to lead: To lead in any area you have to elevate yourself first before you can elevate others...the higher the self elevation, the higher your leadership potential. (you can't give others what you don't have...commit yourself to constant learning) Slow down...You must seek first to truly understand before you become understood. (win the heart of your people...you can do it!)
