7. Collaborate.

Work as a real team. Collaborate with each other, our customers and our partners to find the best solutions. Don’t argue over who is right. Discuss what is right. Collaboration generates better ideas than individuals working alone.

Katelynn's Message:


“You need to be aware of what others are doing, applaud their efforts, acknowledge their successes, and encourage them in their pursuits. When we all help one another, everybody wins.” – Jim Stoval

This fundamental is so important any way you look at it. Teamwork is one of our Core Values, and it is important that we all remember it.

I have the privilege to work with some great people that go above and beyond to help our customers. I have never worked in an environment such as this. It’s refreshing to see everyone work together to get the job done. I am especially grateful for Amber Swartz in the showroom. Her knowledge and abilities help me with tasks and designing every day. I also have many other people here in Toledo that are willing to answer any and all questions I may have.
When we all strive to work together, we get the best possible outcome for our customers. We all have our strengths and weaknesses, and when we help others anything is possible!
