Expectations Not Rules – It’s that simple
Now or a little break in paper and envelope news…Fans o the HBO show
know by now that Chad Johnson nee Ochocinco was released rom theDolphins ater the rst couple episodes this season. However, in this season’sopener Johnson used oul language during a press conerence and you saw a rookiehead coach, Joe Philbin, reprimand Johnson or making the organization look bad.Philbin added, “We all have an obligation, we all have a responsibility. He needs toeither all in line or not, it’s pretty simple”.We don’t have any “Chad Johnson’s” here on the Diamond Envelope team. I wedid, I’m sure our head coach wouldn’t be keeping him around or very long either.I eel our sta currently is some o the best in the industry, delivering high customerservice levels and competitive results making our team run as a cohesive unit. Mostimportantly delivering product on time and in line with customer expectations.Ater this episode Herman Edwards, ormer head coach o the Kansas City Chies andcurrent ESPN ootball analyst, was eatured on ESPN’s Mike & Mike in the Morningwith some reactions and comments to Coach Philbin’s approach to handling thesituation. His most interesting comments were about the expectations he set or hisNFL players versus using “rules”.In the rst meetings with his team each season he would start out with a list o hisexpectations. His rst expectation was “Be on time”. Ater number one he wouldsay, can anyone guess what my next expectation is… “Be on time” and by the thirdexpectation the group understood and in unison would say, “Be on time”. Edwards’theory was that i you were always on time, it showed you cared and you are thereor the team. The team knows you care in return.I you weren’t on time, then you had to stand next to Edwards and i you werestanding next to Edwards on the sideline, it meant you weren’t playing. Playerswould say to him, “you’re killing me coach” and his response was “Be on time”.He continued with the ollowing, “It’s what we all learned in kindergarten. We gotcookies and milk, naps and recess. To a kindergartner you can take away the cookiesand milk and even the naps; but when you take away recess [play time], making thechild sit inside while watching riends play outside, that’s the worst eeling in theworld. “It’s that simple” Edwards concluded.The Diamond Envelope Corporation team never wants to sit next to Coach on thebench; we like to be an active player in a competitive industry. In many aspects, the“Be on time” expectation is a part o the culture at Diamond Envelope Corporation.Whether it’s responding to customers in a timely ashion, shipping product on timeor just arriving to work prepared or the day, the Diamond team delivers on thisexpectation. It’s that simple!
