35. Don’t Judge. Get The Facts.

Don’t make assumptions. There’s usually more to the story than it first appears. Gather the facts before jumping to conclusions or making judgments. Be curious about what other information might give you a more complete picture.

Al's Message:


Many years ago, I watched a television show called Dragnet. It was about two detectives named Friday and Gannon. Friday’s saying was “just the facts Ma’am”, as they did their investigation work. Here at Craft33, our common goal is to do things right the first time.

Our associates all come from different backgrounds and each of them is unique in their own way. When there is an error, we are quick to find out what happened. We look at the problem, do our detective work and get the mistake corrected without passing judgement. If someone is having an issue, everyone is more than willing to work with that person to help them excel and move forward.

When Craft33 was at the CDC (Central Distribution Center), I met Dale Kosco and watched him closely. Dale is a remarkable leader and it shows in how he handles different situations. Dale has a great team and they have taught me a lot, whether they realize it or not. This is just one reason I enjoy the people that I work with. Together we will continue to work with each other, not to pass judgement on each other but to see the big picture and to execute The Perfect Order, case closed.
