Getting The Best Performance From Your People

“If your actions inspire others to dream more, learn more, do more, and become more, you are a leader.”  John Quincy Adams

A Shop Owner named “George” was meeting with his General Manager, named “Ed.”   
Normally, they would have their Monday one on one meetings at George’s office, but this particular day was different.  George decided that a field trip was in order.
