What’s More Important?


Hi, this is David DeFord.

What’s More Important?

Too often we put our tasks above our people.

Do you find yourself continuing to work when a team member enters your work area? Do you glance up occasionally hoping to scare them away with your scowl?

What’s really more important?

A year from now the importance of that task will probably pale compared to your relationship with that team member.

Choose leading over doing.


Need a speaker for your event?
