HOW TO BETTER AT WORK AND IN LIFE, BY HOWE Q. WALLACE IS A PROVEN STRATEGIC TRAINING TOOL FOR PROMOTING A POSITIVE, PEOPLE-FIRST CULTURE IN BUSINESS
Howe Q. Wallace, CEO of PalletOne, Inc., the largest new wood pallet manufacturer in America has been writing thought-provoking messages to his staff since 2005. What began as a 40-day campaign to develop ownership qualities in middle managers has grown into a body of work that sets a positive tone daily for 1,500 staff members.
More than 50 messages – on topics including leadership, teamwork, motivation and courageous communication – have been compiled in the field guide for PalletOne and partner companies to ensure new hires hear the same key messages as their coworkers. The goal is to develop the full potential of the staff, shaping them into better people who are more successful and effective at home and in the workplace.
Wallace is passionate about the possibilities of people and wants employees to be the best little league coaches, scout leaders and PTA members in their communities. He wants them to leave work better every day. At PalletOne, every new employee receives a guide on their first day of work and then actively participates in weekly group lessons.
The field guide can be used as a one-on-one mentoring tool or for small group-training lessons. Teams set weekly goals centered on six standards of excellence highlighted in the guide and use each entry as a discussion topic to reach those goals. This collection of strategic insights transcends the pallet industry and is applicable to anyone who is passionate about seeing their business and employees thrive.
