This past year was an exciting year for us here at CablesAndKits. It was particularly exciting for me as the CFO, because we were and are so focused on metrics. As part of the executive leadership team here, I have been challenging our teams and leaders to find ways to measure their team performance as well as the company’s performance as it relates to their particular roles. There have been many interesting discussions because of this focus, and our team members are learning things about themselves and about business that they never knew before.
I think something is catching on around here. After I knocked the cobwebs off the blog people started coming out of the woodwork with blog ideas. I decided that stealing all their ideas and putting my name on them was wrong (and just too time consuming), so I am doing the next best thing; forcing them to write articles for me!
