Word of Mouth

Word of Mouth

imagesA3PCDPMG imagesZY3WFI4PThe best way to convey that feel good story is by word of mouth.  The telling od the story is so much more powerful coming from the source.  The personal touch always comes through in the telling.  I like to hear how the story is told as the words paint a picture of the world around the story.  If you have that feel good story you want to share just let it fly.  The receiving end of the story will be appreciative.  Tim DeCapua has a whole plethora of stories that he loves to tell.  If you manage to get him talking you will not be disappointed.

Abraham_Lincoln_November_1863Stories must be told.  Throughout time stories have told our story as a nation.  Stories are the personal observations of the people that live through those amazing times in history.  If not for the story tellers the whole meaning of history would have been lost.  It is those personal observations the breath life into history.  Can you imagine a history class where Abe Lincoln speaks to the class and shares his live stories?  That would be the greatest and the student would really learn.  http://www.theglobeandmail.com/globe-investor/personal-finance/home-cents/when-to-consolidate-your-debt/article4280458/ shows the value of a story well told. Abe Lincoln was well known for his story telling ability.  This was a big part of his appeal through history.

untitled (26)Real stories are the way to go.  The made up stuff is a little weird.  I like to read about the life of the author.  Life is always better than fiction.  If you can share your personal truth in the written word effectively you are special.  most of us are lost when it come to articulating what we really mean.  If you have a story to tell, let it out.  Share it with the world and the world will be better for it.  I think that good stories are the best part of relationships.  Those stories explain how you go to be who you are.  Let us know.  Minnesota’s Home For Life Animal Sanctuary has stories that go untold every day.

Emphasizing Community Among Co-Workers Can Inspire Feel-Good Stories

Emphasizing Community Among Co-Workers Can Inspire Feel-Good Stories

Spend a few minutes in any business school classroom and you will undoubtedly hear discussions regarding the many ways a company can successfully improve productivity among its employees for the sole benefit of the bottom line. It is not nearly as often that the societal benefits of fostering a sense of community among employees is discussed, but this is precisely what Luke Weil has proposed.

Weil, the CEO & Co-Founder at Andina Acquisition Corp., believes that creating an atmosphere in which employees care about and rely on one another is important not only for the success of a company, but also for the individuals who make up the company’s identity. Weil acknowledges that there are financial incentives for creating this sense of community, but mostly he believes that it creates a sense of working for the common good, a sense that has been shown to improve job satisfaction.

Weil provided an example in which a group of employees at a fast-food restaurant in North Carolina all pitched in to help a homeless co-worker find and furnish an apartment. This kind act not only helped the co-worker who had been down on her luck, but it also provided a benefit to the family, to the co-workers who pitched in, and to the employer for whom they work.

These mutually beneficial outcomes should be pursued by companies in Madera so that similar feel-good stories can become much more commonplace, Weil says. In doing so, the community becomes a better place for all to live and work.
