Recently I attended a leadership conference with the theme “Together is Better”. We all received a book called “Together is Better – a Little Book of Inspiration” by Simon Sinek. In the book Sinek uses a playground as metaphor for the organizations we might work for, including all the office (playground) politics. Throughout the book, the use of inspirational quotes reminds the reader of how “working together” in leadership is better than going it alone. It got me thinking about the team we work with. Our residents, co-workers, clients, suppliers and resident families are important parts of the team. Each plays a part, helping us achieve our vision of having the residents in our care eat delicious and nutritious meals and have wonderful dining experiences. Check out our Recommended Resources page for some of the companies and organizations that are part of the JOA team. Simon is right…”Together IS Better”.
