Thoughts on thankfulness

Posted By David Ewald, Tuesday, December 1, 2015

November is the traditional time that Americans reflect on the previous year, and give thanks for all that has gone well.


We’re traditionally a thankful lot in November here at Ewald Consulting, and 2015 is no exception, as we look back on a year filled with many more triumphs than challenges. We have never been a group that rests on past success, but rather one that pushes forward, constantly learning from good news and from bad news how we can better serve a diverse array of clients. So as we think about 2015, there’s an air of thankfulness amid our desire to use the experience we’ve gained and the clients we serve to do things even better in 2016 and beyond.


Roughly a decade ago, the sudden collapse of some of the nation’s oldest and best-known brokerage houses was a stark reminder that your future success depends less upon your name, your past and your reputation, and more upon your people, their vision for the future, their tools for implementing that vision, and where they will take you. Those are the thoughts that cross my mind when chatting with Ewald Consulting employees, whether that means the valued team-leader who has served us for two decades or more and brings a vast supply of established relationships and institutional knowledge to the office each day, or the new employee in their first month on job, bringing youth, enthusiasm and a fresh set of ideas to the service of our clients.


Thus far, 2015 has been a year of building our brand and reinforcing our reputation as one of the best in the business. But all of that work is done by great people – our greatest asset, and my greatest source of thankfulness.
