It's Time to Update Your Scorecard

by Danny Wheeler, CCE, ICCE, Adobe Systems Inc 

As we start the New Year I often reflect on the prior year and take in all the past year's challenges, achievements and overall successes. One of the critical aspects of this process for me revolves around finding activities or decisions that I found happiness in and that ultimately help me find my highest level of achievement. The attempt is designed to move past the standard key performance indicators or the black and white delinquency numbers that we all strive to attain year to year. Those are important but the processes we follow and personal choices that lie underneath those metrics are more important. I recently read a book by Hall of Fame NFL coach Bill Walsh titled "The Score will take Care of Itself." It left with me a few key life concepts . . . . Read Full Article

Unraveling Stressors: A Self-Care Reminder
by Stephanie Johnson, CCE, Gritton & Associates Inc

A career in credit management and collections can sometimes be onerous and emotionally taxing. Expectations and performance goals can be set upon us by many outside forces. Credit managers are often daily at odds with customers, vendors, sales team members, management, and legal teams.

Focus on Your Strengths in 2019 

by DeAnna Leahy, CCE, Sunroc Corporation 

Let's face it, there are some things each of us just aren't cut out to do. I certainly don't have some of the talents that others I know possess. It is amazing how our culture places so much emphasis on improving our weaknesses when, at best, we will only be able to be adequate in those areas no matter how hard we try to improve them. From the time that we are young children to the time that we are making our way in the workplace, we are taught to spend more time and energy fixing our weaknesses rather than developing our strengths. All too often, our natural talents go untapped. However, we can take the time to discover our strengths and use them to our advantage rather than spend time improving upon our weaknesses . . . .

ICEL Recap: Ask The Experts
by Keeley Worley, CCE, Nicholas & Company
