Putting People First - The Path to True Success

Putting People First - The Path to True Success-401503-edited.jpg

By Howard Behar, author of "The Magic Cup", and "It's Not About the Coffe"

At Starbucks we always said, “It’s not about the coffee, it’s about the people.” No matter what type of work you do, putting people first – your team, your customers, your partners, your family – will do more for your long-term personal happiness and professional success than any short-term “wins.”

By Scott Feder, Superintendent of the South Brunswick School District 

One of the pitfalls of being new to any situation is the mistake of being quick to rush to judgment. Entertaining the idea that what you see as a problem has actually been vetted to be the most viable solution by someone who came before you is a skill that requires patience, understanding and respect.
