Are you a Mercenary, Missionary, Reactionary or Visionary?
According to Webster's', A Mercenary is someone who serves merely for monetary gain. A Missionary is someone on a charitable mission. A Reactionary is someone who opposes progress. A Visionary is someone with foresight. How would you define your style of interaction with others? Would you be a good Leader? Manager? Administrator? Or Coach? Could you be all four? Should you be all four?
If you know the answers to these questions you are among ONLY a select few. All around us we see incompetence, ignorance and yes, occasionally stupidity. Or, is it systems, processes or environments and culture that promote it. We may be creating the See No, Speak No, Hear No Problem style of management that often exists in organizations.
The Employee Engagement Secret
They say a good employee is hard to find, but Sam Slay will tell you how to pick’em, how to develop’em and how to keep the culture alive! “Think of employee engagement, like internal customer service. You can’t mandate great performance or exceptional customer service, you have to nurture it, feed-it, maintenance it, and never forget it is ultimately responsible for the success or failure of your organization. Every employee is either helping you succeed or they’re helping you fail.” Let Sam share a simple to follow formula and demonstrate how to make your employees happy and engaged and your organization thrive.

SENIOR PROFESSIONAL IN HUMAN RESOURCES - SPHR
Panama City, Bay County, Florida 1-31-2012 -- Sam Slay, Leadership Coach & Management Consultant, of 357 Solutions, LLC recently earned certification as a Senior Professional in Human Resources (SPHR). The certification, awarded by the HR Certification Institute, signifies that (Sam Slay) possesses the theoretical knowledge and practical experience in human resource management necessary to pass a rigorous examination demonstrating a mastery of the field. "Certification as a human resource professional clearly demonstrates a commitment to personal excellence and to the human resource profession," said Mary Power, CAE, Executive Director of the HR Certification Institute. To become certified, an applicant must pass a comprehensive examination and demonstrate a strong background of professional human resource experience. The HR Certification Institute is the credentialing body for human resource professionals and is affiliated with the Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM), the world's largest organization dedicated exclusively to the human resource profession.

Sam's law enforcement career has been extensive with many assignments and responsibilities, but most importantly he has kept his eye on the objective; Productivity. He promotes a true Open Door atmosphere and reveals how valuable this can be to any organization. He believes the private sector teaches the public sector a thing or two about results. The private sector lives or dies by production. The public sector survives by tax dollars and thrives by the examples set forth in a successful private sector organization. Sam has owned four businesses; Two that did not make a profit and the later two that did. He has seen both sides of the equation. He has had friends and clients who had incredible technical competence, but the inability to realize that to properly manage an organization requires more than mere technical skills. Managing an organization and staff requires a different set of skills.
Sam is the kind of Speaker, Leadership Trainer, HR Coach, Management Consultant, and Facilitator, who challenges the process, to improve your future. He will ask the questions others are afraid to. Others may say, "if isn't broke, then why fix it." Sam will tell you it's because you don't know it's broken and your staff is too afraid to point it out. Sam helps open up lines of communication and discussion. He will ask the tough questions.
If you truly believe things are fine the way they are, his services may not be for you. But, if you realize there is always room for improvement, contact him today. He is uniquely concerned with employee morale. Make the employees your first concern and customer service will improve. Without the customer your business would not exist. The public sector can no longer ignore this fact. Many public duties are being privatized. Employees are only one bad customer experience away from being replaced by a machine. Competition is fierce and whoever rises to meet the challenge will succeed in a world where THE ONLY CONSTANT IS CHANGE. Make a conscious decision to make a change, and start by contacting Sam today.
