Hey team, Thankful Thursday. So here we are, a couple more days until Christmas and I can’t help it. I’m sitting here in my living room. Let me give you a little Panorama view real quick.
There’s the tree. The boys put all the ornaments up. Karen did a really good job. Look at the little Christmas houses up on the fireplace. It’s all set up, looks so nice. I have a great, wonderful family. I’m excited about this Christmas. But on this thankful Thursday, one of our last ones before the end of the year, I wanted to just give a shout out thankfulness to our leadership team. All of our NEI leaders, our operations team.
Here, just recently we had a little sickness that rippled through the company. Some of you got an experience that both of my boys were sick. Karen got sick, thankfully I didn’t get sick this time, so that’s a big amen. But we had all of our operational leaders that got sick for about three to four or five days. I think the entire team felt it a little bit.
But what was kind of beautiful about that fact, not that there’s anything really beautiful about somebody getting sick. But we saw other leaders step up and take on responsibilities to help out in certain area. And I love that because that is what teamwork is all about. We have that little saying, “Teamwork Makes the Dream Work.” Well, that’s really true. There’s a lot of truth in that because if it wasn’t for Kade and if it wasn’t for Greg and if it wasn’t for Codie and even the CEIC leaders. All of our team members stepped up a little bit more and did more things, took on more responsibility.
That’s what I’m grateful for, thankful for. Is our NEI leaders caring and sharing the load together, stepping up and doing great things.
So on this Thursday, I just want to be super duper thankful. As many of us should be, for those that do some of the behind-the-scenes hard work. Even making sure that the toilets are clean, making sure that the vacuum has vacuumed the floor. I know that some of our dispatchers are vacuuming the front lobby over at the Sandy office. I’m hearing that similar things are going on over at the Halsey office and up in Longview.
I am so grateful and thankful for our leaders for orchestrating and ensuring. And for our team members that are stepping up into leadership roles and helping out. Making sure that reports are being viewed. I remember hearing Sonja tell me just a week or so ago that on a Monday morning she walked in to like four reports or something that were in the queue. I remember not too many weeks or months ago that we had over a hundred and some reports in the queue on a Monday morning.
So that tells me that leaders are stepping up. That team members, dispatchers are stepping up, reviewing reports, paying attention to and ensuring that the clients get the value that they deserve.
So again, on this Thankful Thursday, I am thankful for all of our NEI leaders. I’m thankful for our team. I’m thankful for those that step up, and I wish you all a Merry Merry Christmas.
The next time we talk, it’ll be after Christmas, so we can show some Christmas gifts off. Maybe I’ll be wearing a new shirt or something, who knows. I’m sure my boys are going to get me something. I’ll have some cologne, probably. But hey, you guys won’t be able to smell that through the screen, so I’ll just have to tell you about it.
All right, I wish you all a Merry Christmas. God bless you, and I will see you on Monday after Christmas. God bless. Bye, see ya.
