Setting Goals

A daily activity here at Accent Group is to set goals. Everyday we gather around and share our goals with everyone. This sets up our employees for success daily! By setting and sharing goals, it allows for everyone to learn from each other and contribute to each others success. Throughout the day, reminding each other of goals gives us a chance to realize the negatives and positives of the day and change anything that isn’t allowing us to pursue the goals. Check out this article from Entrepreneur.com about how to define goals.

Camp Casey Volunteer Work

This past week a few of us were lucky enough to team up with the Detroit Pistons to raise money for Camp Casey. Camp Casey is a local, non profit organization that provides a horseback riding program for children with cancer. On Tuesday, along with other volunteers, we went to the Pistons game and sold 50/50 raffle tickets. Just about $5,000.00 was raised!!! The highest sellers were Lindsay and Lorraina from Accent Group, who sold over $500.00 in raffle tickets alone! WooHoo! We received an official basketball signed by Kim English and four tickets to an upcoming game against the New York Knicks! Alicia, Jill, and Suzy also volunteered from Accent Group to help out with this special event.

The Self-Aware Leader

Everyone loves a good book recommendation right? Well I know we do here at Accent Group. My current assigned textbook in Team Leadership at Oakland University is The Self-Aware Leader: A Proven Model for Reinventing Yourself  by Daniel Gallagher. After reading just one chapter in the book I knew it was just something I had to share. Gallagher is a Fortune 100 Executive and he shares his distinctive approach on how to become the best leader one can be by increasing self-awareness from a business aspect. He offers a modern outlook on how management is always quickly changing. Two key points of the book is a new psychological structure on leadership that’s applicable to today’s business and concrete strategy to apply the new concepts and ideas into action.
