What does FUN mean?

It’s important to have stated Core Values.  It’s then doubly important to integrate them into hiring, reviews and daily practice.  Otherwise they’re just wall decorations!  One of our Core Values is “We have fun.” (We Care, We Have Fun, We Get Things Done)  I wanted to take a few minutes today to describe the two main [...]

Owning Your Core Values

I've written previously about Core Values.  You'll get the sense, if you haven't already, that creating a company with particular characters is very important to me.  It might very well be important to a lot of leaders, but where the rubber hits the road is in the usage of them.  Just like these posts evolve, [...]

Rocks & Gravel

I'd previously written about how this year has very much been about organization building.  Implementing Traction has been a core part of our 2015 transformation.  One of the key elements of Traction is setting quarterly goals, called Rocks. Rocks = Progress The concept of Rocks is an amazing one.  They are goals that you have [...]

It’s Traction Time

Just shy of two months into a new year I can already report amazing personal and organization growth.  The most important discovery has been the book Traction and the system it contains. A clear message to both prospective clients and future teammates: If you're curious how our business runs, read Traction. Attempting to summarize this [...]

Deliberately Different

I had a great revelation recently after working through some team tension.  My first reaction was to furrow my brow and think dark thoughts.  Picture a Peanuts cartoon character with a black scribble mark above their head. Now I'm normally an extremely positive person so it had me wondering where I picked up this behavior. [...]

The Family Table

At a recent church service I attended, the theme was on the "Family Table."  Literally the ideal of eating together with your family on a regular basis, not always in front of the TV or on the go in between extracurricular activities.  There's a direct connection of this concept with our Un-Agency. When someone on [...]

A Higher Purpose

During an owners group coaching event run by Jason Blumer, we were asked about the reason we started our business.  I love how certain questions challenge us and by thinking about them, push us to be more deliberate in what we're doing.  This one certainly does that. Being honest with myself, it's hard to remember [...]

The Siamsa Team

There's a catchy song from decades ago, that when heard, always wills my feet to dance like I was 100% Irish.  It's a song called 'Siamsa' from the Lord of the Dance soundtrack.  A bunch of people doing Irish Step Dancing and Michael Flatley's $1MM insurance policy on his legs.  Coming back to you? While [...]

Recharging Positivity

An important thing to note about positive thinking is that it needs regular recharging. Zig Ziglar made an awesome observation by comparing positivity to personal hygiene.  We take regular showers to stay clean and so naturally need to make a conscience effort to feed the engines of purposeful cheerfulness. How can we do this?  I've [...]

Purposeful Cheerfulness

I've previously written about how a positive attitude is one of our core values.  In addition to describing the value itself, I emphasized the tacit importance of culture in growing our un-agency. When you say "think positive" a lot of different ideas may come to mind.  Everything from excessive happiness to a lack of pessimism.  [...]
