When “The price is not Right”

I think mots of us here in CONUS know of the old TV show hosted by Bob Barker called the Price is Right.  The show had many opportunities for contestants to bid on items.  The closest person to each item price won.  At the end of the game the 2 contestants that won the total …

Are you prepared to Whip the shift?

How many specialists do you know that are just comfortable with existing as a gumby, or grunt and never want to expose themselves to the positions within the shift that call for more responsibility, which in the case of BPI means a higher hourly and daily rate?  In many cases that may be why your phone …

Raising the bar

Several months back Tommy Smith called me to mentor him in this business. As I’ve said before this was the first time someone had come out and asked me that even though I may have been an unwitting mentor to specialists in the past. We spoke daily and I tasked him to do several things …
