The Monday blues. You wake up and sigh, knowing you have a week ahead of you fraught with tasks you don’t want to tackle. Or do you? That depends on where you work.

What if you worked at a place where you didn’t dread Mondays. Instead, you looked forward to Mondays? That’s a novel idea.

According to the American Institute of Stress:

  • 80% of workers feel stress on the job
  • Nearly half say they need help in learning how to manage stress
  • 42% say their co-workers need such help

With these kind of statistics, it’s easy to understand why some people dread going to work. But, it doesn’t have to be that way. What if your workplace didn’t stress you out, but was actually an enjoyable place to be? A place that created a company culture which encouraged your personal development?

How does a workplace accomplish that exactly? By cultivating an environment that focuses on people instead of numbers. By embracing the philosophy of business don’t grow…people do. By encouraging employees to take time to devote to themselves so that they can be better people and better employees by extension. Sound amazing? We know. We live it.

DEFENDERS works very hard to help their employees realize passions and achieve goals. We know that dreading Monday morning and a stressful work week doesn’t bring out the best in anyone.

Define and follow your passions

To help us bring out the best in our team members, we have honed in on our passions so that we can focus our efforts on what matters. Our four passions are:

  • Self-improvement
  • Systems are the solution
  • Developing leaders
  • Ever-expanding influence

This is a good start. But really, the emphasis is on our employees and what they bring to the table.

Now, imagine your ideal work environment. What would it involve? Let us tell you about how we do it at DEFENDERS.

8 factors that create a positive company culture

We know the value of hard-working, loyal team members. So, we strive to create a company culture that reinforces that everyday.

At DEFENDERS, we help our employees by:

  • Encouraging personal growth
  • Starting every meeting with a positive focus
  • Supporting individuals as they work toward personal goals
  • Seeking opportunities to improve our teams and how we work together
  • Encouraging community involvement and service
  • Setting simple goals and working to achieve them
  • Encouraging individuals to hold themselves accountable
  • Working to instill motivation for self-improvement

These principles stem from the ideas encouraged by DEFENDERS founder, Dave Lindsey.

Dave firmly believes that grooming employees to be better people will naturally lead to better business.

“You don’t want to be in the business of buying and selling businesses,” Dave said. “You want to be in the business of growing and developing leaders.”

At DEFENDERS, that’s exactly what we do.
