A Reflection on our Investment of Time

This is a wonderful time of the year, especially when we view it through the eyes of our children. The lights, the presents, the parties and all of the candy. It is an enthralling, engaging and exciting time. Last week we had our Concentre Christmas Party and for the first time, we invited full families. The children loved it.

That’s sometimes the case, but it’s not always true. It’s important to observe and understand how different organizations operate.
