Today’s been a little slower which is nice. Lots of things are happening in all the companies, but only fun stuff like new products, new roles, and salary negotiations. I guess I only have myself to blame when I’ve been writing so much about how to negotiate when my employees really have worked on their arguments. Although at the same time it makes me proud. I think I’m a little bit different than other managers, and every day I’m grateful that my team chooses to be at our company among all the other thousands.
I also want my staff to see this as the beginning, or trampoline, of their career. I’m not saying I want anyone to quit, that’s not it. I mean that I’m aware that it’s unlikely for anyone to work here for the next 30 years. That’s why I want them to max out their time here, learn from us (Pretty knowledgeable) owners, and their closest managers. I want them to use our network and find a mentor. The list goes on. I want to lift my employees, and everyone who’s working with me, and I want this to be a positive time in their career, a time to remember.
My right hand is orginizing Almedalen that’s coming up next week.
Flattered Is releasing a vegan boot this fall. It’s difficult to make a shoe without leather and still have it breathe the same way. We had an intern at our office for a year solely working with this. Now the shoe is done, and we are very proud.
I have a tendenacy to get stuck in certain food routines. 2-3 times per week I get this from Lilla Ekot on Riddargatan. Broccoli and parmesan patties with sweet potatoes and herb dip. Soooo yummy!
New samples arrived from the factory this morning. This is our new Protein & Texture line in two different scents. To receive the first samples after a brief is one of the best parts about my work with LCC. Everything that I’ve been thinking about is now a physical product. It could be a hit or miss.
