Starting off on the right foot
As new hires start their summer job it's important to help them understand the company culture. Many new hires want to do a good job but will need help understanding our values. During the first couple of weeks be willing to help new hires develop good habits and get started on the right foot. Here are some of the basics that I want to see us modeling and holding each other accountable to. .

Notes from the boss
Leadership - not being proud
Boasting is one of the most common traps we can fall into. Confidence isn't a bad thing but it doesn't take much to drift into overconfidence. Let's face it: we want people to know how good we are and why we are worth being respected. Since boasting often comes naturally we need to put guardrails in place that help protect us from this temptation. There are three things we need to remember if we want make sure that boasting doesn't derail our leadership.
1. Remember where you came from. One of the best exercises we can do is to stop for a minute and think about how we got started. What people have taken an interest in us and given us breaks? How has God opened up doors for us to be here? If we forget where we came from, we will often lose sight of where we're going.
2. Remember who you follow. Most of you know I hold to a Christian worldview. With that said I want to challenge each of us with a couple of things. Who you follow matters.
3. Remember that there is more to do. Boastful people are often bitter because they can't stand to see someone else experience more success than them. Humble people don't have time to brag because they're too busy serving others and striving for what's next. One of the best ways to lead is to slow down long enough to listen to people, embrace humility, and serve.
