BPR August 2022 Newsletter - You Are Braver, Stronger, and Smarter

One of the most brilliant pieces of advice I received from one of my beloved mentores is this: "people (that includes biz owners!) like to be around folks they like and that are fun to be with". This is one of the many sage bits I've been fortunate enough to pick up along the way and that has turned most of the more business school or corporate type advice I've been fed, on its head. I'm even more fortunate to apply in practice what I learn as we continue to shape our people driven organization - ten years young this year! It comes down to our people, getting real with ourselved and each other, and collectively getting out of our own way so that growth isn't just a catchphrase that sounds nice. We're all braver, stronger, and smarter than we allow ourselves to think. Go for it, do what's uncomfortable, lean on each other - you'd be surprised at where you end up vs. what you thought you could do!

This month's feature is dedicated to people we love including a spotlight on one of our more successful clients, and providing you with the HR resources that will help you get your people processes in order.
