Employee Motivational Event

Not only are we committed to serving our customers, but we're also committed to going above and beyond for our employees! We believe we have an amazing team, and it's important for us to take time to congratulate, motivate, and celebrate them! For this specific event, we were also unveiling our new and improved Tyler branch, located right next to Andy's on South Broadway in Tyler, TX. This was a special night for our team because we're rarely all in one room, given that we have six branches throughout the East Texas area. Since these opportunities are few and far between, we wanted to go above and beyond to make the night special.

Jake Thompson

Jake Thompson is a motivational speaker who teaches teams how to build grit, accountability, & compete every day for success! 

For this year's employee event, we wanted to do something we'd never done before - bring in a motivational speaker to pump-up the team and share helpful tips and tricks for being more productive in the day-to-day. For this task, we partnered with Jake Thompson, who is a motivational speaker, business consultant, and author of Compete Every Day. 

In addition to an all-employee session, Jake hosted a leadership training session for our Executive team before the event! During this time, our team discussed the characteristics of good leaders, the difference that leaders make on the success of their teams, and the mental grit, perseverance, and courage it takes to compete with yourself every day. 

During this session, our exec team was surprised with matching tshirts that emphasize our three core values - common sense, consistency, efficiency.
