APM is so grateful to be a Goodwin House Incorporated (GHI) partner since 2004. ‘The Goodwin House experience’ has changed the way we view our client relationships. Not to say we didn’t value our clients before, but GHI has redefined the personal side of business.
While we always understood the importance of this, our primary focus was to aim for quality – and once achieved we thought ‘job well done’. But let’s dig a little deeper as to what could be better than quality? It’s a rarity that an individual can make such impact for personal or professional growth, but to have an organization have that effect on an entire firm is unimaginable.
What exactly caused this effect?
Working with seniors? Yes, that has a lot to do with it.
Before GHI our expertise was firmly rooted in the educational community, our youth – our future generations. While that is a wonderful thing, it did not lend itself for reflection, a deeper understanding that we are just that, ‘we’. Not I, or me, but we.
It’s a reminder to live a full life, make relationships with our colleagues, and create experiences for others that are bigger than yourself. We now find great satisfaction just seeing a resident enjoying the warmth of the day, a silhouette in the sunshine. No longer is it just construction of a building. We realize we are building homes for stories to be told and celebrations to be had.
While this blog could be all about marketing, we wanted to simply say thank you. Thank you for enriching each of us for the past decade. Goodwin House Incorporated is a business, but the people behind it are family.
The Power of Friendship
One early hour of a December morning in 2004, we arrived to meet the Goodwin House interview team of 6. Twelve examining eyes upon us was, admittedly, intimidating. We never could have guessed in that moment that a decade later, those twelve eyes would change the way we do business.
