05 Jul How Do You Show People that You Care?

If you left your organization today, would you leave all the managers and team members with a care package? I recently led a Kids’ Clubhouse Team Lead meeting. Toward the end of the meeting, Kevin Koehler, one of the managers, announced that he was going to be moving to Texas in a few weeks.

He then turned around and grabbed 7 manila envelopes. They were care packages, one for each manager in the room. Inside each care package was all the different systems and processes that Kevin put together over the years. Laminated sheets on how to trace patterns and shapes. Different music CD’s to calm the kids down and have fun with them. A flash drive that has thousands of different coloring sheets that he’s downloaded over the years. And my favorite, an emoji ice pack for when the kids get hurt.

Here’s the deal. Kevin truly cares. Every organization would love to have a Kevin. Our mission is to make a difference in people’s lives… and Kevin did just that for many years. But you don’t have to wait until you leave an organization to care.

CHALLENGE: How can you put together a care package, right now, to show all of your people and organization that you genuinely care?
