    EOS® with a Heavy Dose of TLC

    Posted on November 23, 2020


    Finding Our Direction   Managing people and processes can be like playing pinball.

At Dasher, we have found that operations run much more efficiently and effectively when managers have a set […]Read More

    Posted on November 02, 2020


    How It Really Works Dasher team member Joe Leaks says that “Saving money was not always a common thing for my family growing up.” He then read the book by Robert Kiyosaki titled, “Rich Dad Poor Dad.” It completely shifted his paradigm on money and how he should use it.

    Posted on October 26, 2020


    Soft Touch during Hard Times Even with the most astute money management, there are times when life still sends us financial tremors that can add up to a debilitating earthquake.

    Gotcha Good

    Posted on October 19, 2020


    You’ve Been Gotcha’d! Our “Gotcha” program has its roots in many school classrooms, “good news” media teams, and Candid Camera. If someone sees a team member doing good, by living our Dasher values, that team member receives points for doing good.  Points equal dollars.  Team members can cash in their “Gotcha” points for cash or […]Read More

    Telling Your Money Where to Go

    Posted on August 31, 2020


    Exit vs Stay Interview While nearly every organization conduct exit interviews for departing employees, we do something completely different.

    Bad Luck? Maybe. Some team members who fail to live up to expectations may not be poor performers. They may just be having a streak of bad luck.

    The Two Flaws That May Not Be Fixable

    Posted on August 10, 2020


    Listening to Understand vs. Listening to Respond When a once-reliable employee grows resentful or self-destructive, our listening has to be keen and judgment-free.
