The process we use to map out our goals for the year. It is a mix of who we are and what we do and it touches on everything from operations to engaging in charitable work. It is the guide we use to bring the heart and the head together.
It's very tempting to take the easy path, the one we know best, but it's more rewarding when success comes from stretching into the unknown with support from your team. The comfort, learning, and panic zones are ones we jump around in all the time. We encourage folks to hang out between the learning and panic zones, which we call the Edge of Possibility (EOP). The EOP is a place you've never ventured into before, but are willing to go because you have the support you need. From this place our employees can stretch and grow in ways they never dreamed possible.
Deadlines, operations, and goals are an important part of a company, but they don't define the people who define the brand. That is why we don't just review employees solely on their work. We see how we're living into Tuthill's values, creating flourishing families, and contributing to spirited communities. We also want employees to develop their skills so they can become their best. These reviews provide an opportunity to dialogue about how employees are performing as well as what they've learned.
