Star Trek Fans? Leonard Nimoy, Spock, Dies at 83


Recommended Posts

One of my favorite shows was the original Star Trek. The intellect and ideas that were brought out through the characters and the story lines were amazing to a young lad like myself. Today, a lot of there concepts are real and are part of our daily lives. Mr. Spock and the rest of the rest of the cast not only showed us new ways of thinking about our future, but showed us a future where different species could work together.

 

It always seemed to me that there was an underlining story in the story.

 

Keep in mind this was Vietnam era, hippies, Nixon, etc... a very different time than today.

 

There are very few TV shows that get the right cast, the right story lines, and the right time to be aired. This was one of them.

 

On and Off the air Mr. Nimoy was a class act. Live long and prosper.

      It always amazes me when I hear about a technician who quits one repair shop to go work at another shop for less money. I know you have heard of this too, and you’ve probably asked yourself, “Can this be true? And Why?” The answer rests within the culture of the company. More specifically, the boss, manager, or a toxic work environment literally pushed the technician out the door.
      While money and benefits tend to attract people to a company, it won’t keep them there. When a technician begins to look over the fence for greener grass, that is usually a sign that something is wrong within the workplace. It also means that his or her heart is probably already gone. If the issue is not resolved, no amount of money will keep that technician for the long term. The heart is always the first to leave. The last thing that leaves is the technician’s toolbox.
      Shop owners: Focus more on employee retention than acquisition. This is not to say that you should not be constantly recruiting. You should. What it does means is that once you hire someone, your job isn’t over, that’s when it begins. Get to know your technicians. Build strong relationships. Have frequent one-on-ones. Engage in meaningful conversation. Find what truly motivates your technicians. You may be surprised that while money is a motivator, it’s usually not the prime motivator.
      One last thing; the cost of technician turnover can be financially devastating. It also affects shop morale. Do all you can to create a workplace where technicians feel they are respected, recognized, and know that their work contributes to the overall success of the company. This will lead to improved morale and team spirit. Remember, when you see a technician’s toolbox rolling out of the bay on its way to another shop, the heart was most likely gone long before that.
