People who build great relationships don't just think about other people—they act on those thoughts. One way of showing you think of others is to give unexpected, genuine praise. Everyone loves unexpected praise--it's like getting flowers not because it's Valentine's Day, but "just because." Praise boosts morale and lets them know you're thinking about them (which is flattering in itself.) Take a little time every day to do something nice for someone you know, not because you're expected to but simply because you can. When you do, your relationships improve dramatically. #investinrelationships #murrenway

Lee Jeffcoat is one of our senior estimators, celebrating 8 years with the company last month. We visited with Lee last year for his anniversary, but we can’t get enough of Lee, so we sat down with him again to ask him about his life and any updates. Looking back on his early days here at the company, right out of the gate Lee was willing to go the extra mile for the team.
