Attitude Matters

Published by Lodestone Logic on

There are many reasons why I love working with the Lodestone Logic team. The primary one is because of their attitude. Working with them is the most amazing experience of my career. We are a startup and the ground is always shifting beneath our feet. Yet, time and time again they jump into the fray and do whatever it takes.

One of our key team members is Jenn Wood. Jenn has been on this journey with me before Lodestone Logic even existed. We met when we were both at a pharmaceutical company working on the launch of an internal platform for employees to use video blogs and presentations to improve collaboration and inter-departmental/affiliate communications. It truly was an ‘against all odds’ type of endeavor, but we did it. As I was transitioning the project to the new owner/sponsor, Jenn said to me that if I ever started my own company, that she’d come work for me. Starting my own company was so far from my mind, that I just thanked her and said something like, “Sure, if that ever happens.” It’s like she could foresee the future!

Fast forward about 2 years. I re-connected with Jenn and reminded her of what she had said before about working for me. Even though she was gainfully employed, she agreed to work a few hours each week doing basic administrative stuff. Much to my surprise, a few months later, she quit her job and picked up more hours with Lodestone Logic.

Jenn never ceases to amaze me. I have lost count of the things that I have asked her to do; the whole gambit from little simple to big complicated tasks. Each time she accepts the challenge and has never been deterred. Even in the midst of craziness, she is able to ebb and flow and still hammers away at whatever is the priority. Her approach and attitude to her work is so refreshing. My biggest conundrum is not swamping her with too many responsibilities.

During today’s Lodestone Logic team meeting we were discussing a new potential opportunity. Jenn throws up her arms yells out, “I’m all in!”

At that moment, I realized that this IS what Lodestone Logic is all about.

Every single one of us are ‘all in’.

Every day we apply our energy, skills, and abilities to transform healthcare and make things happen that others thought were impossible. Our attitude matters; it has a direct effect on how we work with each other and deliver services to our clients.

Now, thanks to Jenn we have motto that truly reflects who we are. And, thanks to our friend and co-conspirator, Michele Steele, we have a fun logo to represent it.

We love being and working with people like ourselves. If you are ‘all in’, reach out and let us know!
