Focus, Don't Lose It On The Tire!

March 25, 2015 | Chris Davie

 

One of the areas Sonority Group works closely with clients on is their focus.  In a recent meeting with the CEO of a small business, he expressed his struggles staying focused on the things that will really move his organization forward. Instead his time is filled with all the daily to-dos, keeping people on-task and the demands of running his own company. Our conversation shot me back almost 20 years to the moment my views on focus where shaped from a pretty nasty mountain bike wreck.

 

Industry and Education Collaboration, A Key To Sustainability

March 11, 2015 | Chris Davie

 

As I was being interviewed for an article that explores the state of education and training in broadcast audio by Dan Daley of Sports Video Group, it dawned on me how this issue affects so many other types of professions and the schools training in those professions. Not a new topic but one that got me thinking. How does an industry needing qualified new talent, that will be gainfully employed, keep their pipeline filled if students are not attracted to the programs training them in these particular areas?

If You Do The Education Right...

"If you do the education right... the business will follow". I've had some pretty sharp conversations as a result of this statement over the years. Some in agreement and some adamantly on the other side. I'm a true believer that when we ground our decisions on a few simple principles, decisions are easily made, trust is built and everyone grows.
