“Dreams are the core of every person. It is there that our passion for life is ignited.” – Matthew Kelly, The Dream Manager
At Exhibit Systems, we believe in these words from Matthew Kelly and that is why we introduced the Dream Manager program for our employees in 2018. Articulating a dream can be a daunting road block for anyone, especially when factoring in the chaos of a job, family, friends, and more. By implementing the Dream Manager program, we aim to help our team in chasing their dreams both in and out of the workplace.
Based on the work of Matthew Kelly, the Dream Manager program is an exciting educational journey of developing stronger, happier people. Led by Sales Manager John Schlosser who serves as the company Dream Manager, the program helps employees create attainable goals that align with dreams in twelve specific categories, such as intellectual or creative. In turn, these measurable aspirations lead to living a more enriched life and allow participants to maintain fulfilling relationships.
“It becomes a rallying point for the business and it’s employees,” says John, who has built a program that currently includes eight participants and several management team members at Exhibit Systems.
We’ve seen many benefits of implementing Dream Manager, but one of the most notable is how the program has rewired the mindsets of employees to create a friendlier work environment. We’ve seen how participants have become better friends, parents, siblings, and role models to those they touch in their everyday worlds. As participants accomplish their dreams, they become happier and, in turn, improve the space around them by encouraging others to be further dedicated to the task they are completing.
Offering this program is one way we invest in our employees. We are committed to fostering an environment where our employees feel valued, not just for the work they do here, but for who they are as people. It is truly rewarding to see our employees become the very best versions of themselves.
“In helping them live their dreams, we become personally invested in them – one of the fundamentals of teamwork.” – Matthew Kelly, The Dream Manager
The Dream Manager program has helped us enhance our company culture and will continue revolutionizing lives as it pushes on into 2019. Due to its high level of success, a second 13-week program is set to kick off soon, so more dreamers can participate and further develop the great team here at Exhibit Systems.
