Since earning his Kirkpatrick bronze level certification in November 2013, Jared Allen has initiated anumber of positive changes to the training conducted at his company, Goodwill of Central Arizona.
On December 31, I was buzzing around completing all of my year-end tasks, one of which was donating some unneeded clothing and household items to Goodwill. When I pulled up to the donation center, a group of smiling, friendly workers walked out to my vehicle and cheerfully loaded my boxes into their cart. As I closed the tailgate, one of them looked me in the eye and said, “Thank you for changing lives.”
Wow, I thought to myself. This organization gets it! They could have said, Thanks for your donation" or "Thanks for your generosity." Instead, they related my fairly mundane behavior of giving away my old stuff for a year-end write off to their ultimate purpose: to make those clothes and household items into the subject for training disabled individuals so that they can have jobs that give them purpose, income and ultimately the means to a productive life.
