I found myself in a frustrating situation of a technical nature this morning. This issue meant I had to find a fix for a glitch in my laptop computer. My laptop is utilized for most of my work as The Maplewood’s communications manager. So as one might imagine, I found myself agitated and increasingly impatient, as the fix was not presenting itself.
It’s great how a wonderful story can literally walk into your office and tell itself. With our annual 3-day Holiday Bazaar going on today – this being my first Bazaar – I had already seen and heard plenty of nice things worth sharing. But what was shared with me this afternoon was truly special.
Well hello there! My name is Mike Nelson, and I'm the new communications manager here at The Maplewood.
Having spent my first few weeks soaking in all things Maplewood, I've experienced first-hand an amazing philosophy that runs through our entire organization. This philosophy is called The Maplewood Way.
The Maplewood Way is a belief system that starts from the inside and radiates outward, to the benefit of all. This touches all areas of life at The Maplewood, including work environment, operations, leadership, expertise, innovation, and service.
