When Davies Hood asked me to pen a recap, summation or a farewell, if you will, of my times here at Induron Coatings, it was difficult to choose a tone or theme to use. Continue reading “To Everything There is a Season, and a Time to every Purpose Under Heaven.” (Ecclesiastes 3:1)

Barry Peters is one of the best “hires” that I have ever made as a manager. For anyone who has ever been responsible for hiring and firing people, that statement says A LOT!
With a heavy heart, from both a personal and professional side, I would like to wish Barry a healthy, happy and long retirement. I first met Barry back in 1987 in the old Indurall Southside Paint Store located on 24th & 7th Avenue South on a Saturday afternoon. He was working by himself back in the warehouse when my father (owner of the company at the time) and I walked in and made ourselves comfortable behind the counter with a couple of cold Coca-Cola’s. Barry walked back into the retail part of the building to see two unknown faces behind the counter — a place they shouldn’t be. He immediately sized us up and, in his most authoritative voice, asked if he could help us. Knowing we were unrecognized as co-workers, we immediately introduced ourselves and effusively apologized. However, that first impression left an indelible image of someone who has always done-the-right-thing when presented with a surprise or a challenge. Continue reading A Tribute to Barry Peters

Induron’s business is built on family and culture. Which is to say, a business built on relationships. It is who we are. Simon Sinek’s now-famous TED talk encourages us to “start with why” in building our businesses and our lives. Strategy can tell us what we are going to do and how we want to do it, but you’ll never really inspire passion with that strategy without a compelling answer to why you are doing what you do. Teammates, clients, and other partners need to understand your why if they are going to really buy into a strategy that details what you are going to do and how you are going to do it.
