With almost one year of marriage under my belt I’m officially an expert… (not!) But I have managed to maintain the mindset of being on my honeymoon almost this entire time. I challenge you to adopt a similar mindset.
How can you love your spouse as if you just left the altar?
How to Start an Employee Experience Team:
Are you tired of losing your best employees to your competitors? Is your turnover rising and you can’t figure out what to do? Do your departments fight amongst themselves and hold an us versus them mentality?
If you answered yes to at least one of these questions then you need to form an employee experience team.
“The way your employees feel is the way your customers will feel. And if your employees don’t feel valued, neither will your customers.”

Words of wisdom:
“Work is so foundational to our makeup, in fact, that it is one of the few things we can take in significant doses without harm. Indeed, the Bible does not say we should work one day and rest six, or that work and rest should be balanced evenly—but directs us to the opposite ratio. Leisure and pleasure are great goods, but we can take only so much of them. If you ask people in nursing homes or hospitals how they are doing, you will often hear that their main regret is that they wish they had something to do, some way to be useful to others. They feel they have too much leisure and not enough work. The loss of work is deeply disturbing because we were designed for it. This realization injects a deeper and far more positive meaning into the common view that people work in order to survive. According to the Bible, we don’t merely need the money from work to survive; we need the work itself to survive and live fully human lives.”
