It is “Back-to-School” time. Do you remember the thrill, anxious anticipation, and nervous excitement of your first days and weeks of each of your school years? What energy you had! What openness to new possibilities! At Daggett Shuler we believe that we can all share this sense of excitement, and continual learning is actually one of our major firm beliefs.
Learning is a continual process. Social scientists, doctors, psychologists, and researchers confirm that continued learning is necessary for proper brain function and development. Long term learning affects intellectual, ethical, social and performance development. At Daggett Shuler we work daily as individuals and as a team to learn new skills, and challenge our brains. Formally, one of the ways we pursue this object is by having firm meeting every Friday morning. These meetings include all of us.
Our Friday meetings may consist of some substantive presentations, team building opportunities, outside motivational speakers, personal betterment, and sometimes just plain fun and fellowship. We try to share our successes, as well as learn from experiences to make us all better individually and collectively as we progress. For example, we continually update and share efficiencies gained and better results achieved through advances in processes and technology.
This past Friday we had a presentation by Dr. Joseph Skelton, Director of the Brenner FIT Program at Brenner Children’s Hospital, part of the Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center . Dr. Skelton is a leading expert on developing healthy families and healthy children. His presentation was informational, motivational, eye-opening, and at times humorous. He is a terrific speaker!
We believe this culture of continued learning betterment is important for each of us as individuals, and makes us better collectively. Our combined progressive intelligence, ethics, motivation, and client focused action plans we believe makes our firm a bit unique. Further, we are committed to continuing future progress and development. We believe this not only makes us better, but also allows us to better serve our clients.
Members of our Daggett Shuler team many times find our environment challenging while at the same time welcoming. We believe this makes us all better, more productive, and helps us worked together toward common missions and goals.
We look forward to opportunities for continued learning, together.
