News > There is No “I” in Success
Before she came to Dasher, Denise Maldonado worked as a paraprofessional in an emotional support class for an urban school district. She loved that job, despite the low pay and the complex demands. As a single mother of five, she worked two jobs to support her family
As a bubbly, positive person, she lamented the school district’s culture, which often seemed to reject those children who were struggling the most. She loved those children. She dedicated herself to educating and uplifting every child.
For every child, there was a different yardstick for success. For one, success may be as simple as sitting quietly. Her attitude, celebrating success, lends itself beautifully to Dasher’s culture of celebrating successes every day.
When you celebrate success, failures are non-existent. As iconic automaker Henry Ford famously said, “They are merely opportunities to begin again, more intelligently.”
One fundamental way Dasher celebrates success is through our “Gotcha” program. We “catch” people doing things right.
Especially in this challenging year, altered like never before by a global pandemic, we found many successes. Remarkably, Dasher exceeded our budget for “Gotcha’s” because so many team members rose to the occasion and turned in exceptional work.
In this program, anyone can nominate anyone. Points convert to dollars. Team members can receive their money on the very same day as their notable success. It can be instant gratification, or honorees can save their dollars.
Noted entrepreneur Victor Kiam famously said: “Even if you stumble, you are still moving forward.”
At Dasher, if you stumble, Dasher surrounds you with positive friends ready to pull you up.
