What's your job? 
Few see work, let alone daily life, this way. We’ve added too many unnecessary trappings to the repetitive things we do. Our focus on adding value has been clouded, making the true requirements of our customers harder to identify. What really is your job?

A strategy to rebuild trust 
Changing culture is the most difficult challenge for an organization, particularly one as successful as our client. History provides long lists of those that disappeared by failing to change. Cultural change begins at the top. Human nature prevents most senior leaders fro accepting blame and recognizing their mistakes. Rather than attempt to work with them, most boards quickly replace executives who resist needed changes.

IE tools aid conference feedback
Having worked as an industrial engineer in a prior chapter of my vocational life, I am always looking for ways to improve service, processes and quality. That experience was useful two years ago when I volunteered to coordinate the continuing education for the annual conferenc of the Georgia College Counseling Association, of which I am a member.
