“Correction does much, but encouragement does more.” Goethe

As an experiment, I’ve changed my approach to communicating with my team at work. Why I have waited this long is a mystery.

I guess part of it is the anticipation of attending more training through the Disney Institute. The next course is on People Management.

Are you a manager or supervisor? How are your communication skills? Do you have a high turnover rate among front line employees? Do your front line employees know what it takes to achieve your goals?

What is your skill level on correcting and encouraging your employees so that they perform at their best? How good are you at selecting the right individual for the right job?

Those are the questions I hope to get answered as part of the course.

I guarantee you this . . . it will probably reveal more about my faults, areas where I need correction, and how to communicate to all of my team members. It should be humbling and rewarding at the same time.

Day 3 – What standard are you using for self correction?

    April 6-9 at Boardwalk Inn. My Disney Magical Express tag arrived in yesterday’s mail. The family is joining me on Friday, a secret we’re not telling the kids. Since we’re staying at the Boardwalk, I thought it would be good to go to Epcot that evening. Well, as luck would have it, Epcot has Extra Magic Hours on that night. It couldn’t get any better!

    And, forgive me. I didn’t mention DI coming to Valpo! AWESOME!!!!

    What course? Are you going to attend? I’m sure there will be special pricing for Alumni!

    It’s fun to see your excitement (both of you) as you talk about DI.

    Because of what DI involves, it’s more than just sitting in a ballroom watching slides while a moderator regurgitates every word on the screen.

    It’s a living demonstration on how to do your best, to offer the best, because your customers deserve the best.
