A Thoughtful Tip
by a Superintendent
By Dr. Jim Capolupo
Springfield School District
Here are some tips from a little company called Starbucks. New employees get this message:
*Be welcoming . . . offer everyone a sense of belonging
*Be genuine . . . connect, discover, respond
*Be knowledgeable . . . love what you do, share it with others
*Be considerate . . . take care of yourself, each other, and our environment
*Be involved . . . in the store, in the company, in your community
*Make a friend. Make a difference. Make someone's day!
"Creating the experience that keeps people coming back relies on the magical combination of three things: *Our products *Our places *And, our people.
They come for coffee, stay for the inviting warmth, and return for the very human connection. Now go ahead, welccome your next new regular."
