  1. I am not sure there is a “magic elixir” Wayne, but I believe all successful business owners share your concerns. All “A Players”, whether in business or in sports are MOTIVATED and want to do great things. Like you,I often struggle to understand WHY people follow my lead and WANT to work in our business. We are constantly evaluating what can we do better to continue to attract and retain our key people. Regardless, the “wheels on the bus” must continue to turn, and we have to continue to develop the next generation while keeping the “old guard” satisfied as well. I wish I knew the magic formula and could simply implement it, but each and every individual is unique and requires a slightly different approach to make them feel they are a valued part of the team.

    • Good wisdom, Danny. We’re all searching for that magic elixir!

  2. I believe that it’s pronounced Kerr (like blur)
    So is Dennis your Kevin Durant?
    We work on our team subscribing to our core values:

    When they share these values, worrying about their happiness is diminished as they are already team players and content!

    • Thanks, Don. See below for my mea culpa on Kerr

  3. All of these Blogs are EXCELLENT! Wayne, it is Steve Kerr, not Carr!

    • Glad you like them, Barry. In NC, we pronounce Kerr as “Car.” I should’ve left my regional idiosyncrasy out of it.

  4. Only 2 things I can think of are taking care of our key people with bonuses, flexibility with work schedule, making sure they have all the tools they need to do their job safely, make their opinion matter as a team member, and owner being available when employees need to talk and giving them responsibility.

    • All good thoughts, Paul. Thank you.
