The Bob Father


As some of you may know every employee here at SA is officially highly effective. How can we make such a statement? We’ve all undergone Franklin Covey training. We have certificates of completion and everything! Some of us have even been maximized. (I will be maximized on April 12th. Get ready, world.) Strategic Americans: Officially Effective

Well there’s a new kind of effectiveness sweeping the office. It was inspired by my Covey accountabilibuddy, Bob Jackson.

Normally you’d have to pay to be trained in the ways of effectiveness, but as a loyal Our Couch reader these insights are free. You’re welcome.
