Pride in People
Whether it’s company, client, or community, it is people, and the care and feeding of relationships that drive success. At ABTech we strive to make every interaction better by focusing on collaboration, learning, innovation and the well-being of all our stakeholders.
Our Principals of Collaboration
Choose our attitude: We have the power to choose our response to difficult situations, and as a result we find opportunities we never imagined possible.
Support each other: The glue in our humanity is in being fully present for one another. We are not tuned out, distracted, or focused on the past or future, but simply in the present moment.
Make their day: We look for ways to “make someone’s day” through small acts of kindness or unforgettable engagements, turning routine encounters into special memories.
Have fun: We enjoy what we’re doing and working with each other; co-workers, customers and vendors alike. Having fun sparks creativity, productivity and job satisfaction.
Message from our President, Ken Abbott
What does “Pride in Precision” mean? To us it means having the natural desire to do our best at every task. Whether it’s responding to a product quote, building precise high quality gages and measurement systems, or managing relationships, we take pride in doing the best we can do.
The great Vince Lombardi said “Practice doesn’t make perfect, perfect practice makes perfect”
And that is the philosophy that drives our company. ABTech has a history of taking Pride in Precision in manufacturing and building a reputation for quality. We have fostered a team-oriented atmosphere that goes beyond just staff, but also includes our customers and vendors. Treating everyone as part of our team whether they are internal or external to our organization is central to our success.
In addition, we continually seek traditional and non-traditional ways to improve. One such effort was to develop our culture with intention which we call “Pride in People”. We are striving to create a safer coaching atmosphere as we work on refining our Emotional Intelligence skills such as self-awareness, giving and receiving feedback, and managing triggers.
I want to thank our ABTech entire family for participating in this effort and for exploring new ways to communicate. I am grateful to my dear friend Jeff Saari of Visionary Coaching, LLC for guiding us through this journey.
I encourage others to reflect upon their own Emotional Intelligence and how those around you are treated. For example: What is it like to have a conversation with you? The “World Famous Pikes Place Fish Market” owned and operated by John Yokoyama is a fantastic example of the benefits of focusing on every day interactions. It’s worth checking out his book “When Fish Fly.” It might change your life. I know it changed mine.
As for ABTech, I am confident that together we will continue to learn and grow towards perfecting a company culture in which we can all take great pride.
Thanks a lot for your help. Your rapid, informative correspondence was invaluable. Hopefully I won't be bothering you with any further questions, but it's good to know you're willing.
