Lessons from Quinton
We’d like to introduce you to the newest member of our staff! Quinton is a puppy who loves to eat and dance, but not at the same time or the kibble flies everywhere.
He’s exceptionally smart for his age. So smart in fact that he’s constantly reminding us of our core business values. Pretty cool pup, huh?
For instance, Quinton is the best cardboard recycler in town. To see him attack a cardboard box and break it down in 20 seconds flat is inspiring, and it makes us realize we want to work just as hard in advancing our own sustainable building initiatives.
Like Parker Johnston, Quinton is really big on safety. He attends ‘Puppy Boot Camp’ 3 days a week (The Dog Company) to make sure he gets along with everyone. We have to admit he is having a hard time accepting the idea that he has to be nice to cats too.
Quinton has also fallen head over heels in love with, of all things, a metal bowl. If he can’t find this metal bowl or if he suspects one of us is “being funny” and hiding it on him (which is normally the case), he will articulate his displeasure loudly and clearly doing a spot-on impression of Chewbacca. By doing this, Quinton reminds us daily of the importance of good communication, both internally as well as with our clients.
Throughout the day Quinton takes puppy naps with his paw resting on top of Tony’s (one of our talented Draftsmen) lunchbox, ever hopeful that what’s inside will sooner or later be his. It’s pretty adorable, and it’s also a great reminder that persistence pays off. Quinton isn’t satisfied until that ham sandwich and bag of Fritos is his. We aren’t satisfied until we get the job done and get it done right.
We could go on and on about Quinton because he’s a pretty special dog. But why don’t you come into our office and see him for yourself? He’d love to meet you, and as it just so happens, we would too.
