…although not specific to Marco’s, or even to the pizza industry…some good pointers here
…. because, sometimes, no matter how hard we try….it happens.
Take a look at this video from YouTube, and post your opinions. We’d love to hear them.
How are you and your team measuring up?
Are you a bunch of Grovers?
What’s your opinion: is there a difference between Managers and Leaders?
Here’s Scott Williams’ take on it…
Ken Blanchard: The One Minute Manager.
To Lead People Is to Be Servant Leaders.
Live each day of your life with some passion…. with some drive. This year I will make this goal become a reality…. I won’t talk about it anymore. I can!
Fear kills dreams… fear kills hope.
The effect you have on others is the most valuable currency there is.
I don’t believe in hope. Hope is a beggar.
Success will not come without sacrifice…sacrifice of time, sacrifice of effort, sacrifice of money, energy, effort. Perseverance is a must. What you did last week doesn’t count… only today counts… If there’s no enemy within, the enemy outside can do us no harm.
We fall when we don’t believe! Those who believe in themselves, who believe in their team, and who dedicate themselves to fulfilling their dreams will succeed.
Being successful in business, as with anything else in life, requires us to DREAM! We determine our own success… but to maximize our opportunities… we have to DREAM!
People will forget what you say; they’ll forget what you do — but they’ll never forget how you made them feel.

This is a nice short video on building engagement within your team by finding the Engagement Sweet Spot.
Here is a good video of Yale University Professor Marc A. Brackett, Director, Yale Center for Emotional Intelligence providing a presentation on Emotional Intelligence: From Theory to Everyday Practice.
We recognize organizations with outstanding leadership and learning (or training) programs when we see them, and among the best in this field is Chick-fil-A. In this video, New York Times Best-Selling Author, Dr. John C. Maxwell, speaking at a Chick-fil-A leadercast, explains the Five Levels of Leadership.
Dr Maxwell presents valuable examples and raises a lot of points that could be immediately applied to many of the situations we face on a daily basis. Please share your thoughts on Dr Maxwell’s description of the Five Levels of Leadership, and how understanding them might be helpful to you and your crew(s).

Hi everyone! As Marco’s Pizza begins its journey to become one of the top four pizza companies in the United States, and in particular as we continue to expand internationally , the Learning & Development Department wishes to take this opportunity to announce the launch of our blog.
Social collaboration, social learning, and sharing information will play a big part in our strategy to build a Best-in-Class corporate university over the next few years, further moving us along the path from a C1 Culture to a vibrant and inspiring C2 Culture.
We invite all members of the Marco’s family to contribute to this blog. Share your interests, your passions, and your team’s successes. As with anything though, there are a few rules:
- this is an open forum, so please do not post proprietary or confidential information here
- please keep it clean and professional
- we will not tolerate disparaging our competitors, since it is our drive and motivation to not just slide past them, but to catapult over them using our superior products, Guest service, and training that motivates us as we begin building a Best-in-Class corporate university
We look forward to learning with all of you!
