Send Flowers to the Living!

The best ‘people practices’ don’t have to be complicated or expensive to work.  T.J. Schier’s practical, tactical book, Send Flowers to the Living is packed full of sincere, real and relevant ways to engage and inspire teams of all sizes.

What’s that crazy title mean? Here’s T.J.’s explanation:

“When do flowers typically arrive in a relationship? Usually at the very beginning, when they ‘have to’ and at the end…at the funeral. The idea of ‘Sending Flowers to the Living!’ is a practical business approach to recognize your employees while they are still with you.

Recognize and reward above and beyond performance. Not only will you get more from the person you recognize, but you will also encourage others to start going above and beyond. Don’t wait until an employee turns in their notice to start heaping praise on them in hopes they stay…send flowers to the living!”


T.J. is offering his books at a 30% discount to SPEAK! customers for the holidays.  What a great gift for both franchisees and general managers alike!
