2012 Second Place Thought Challenge Winner

Life Lesson

by Jon Grander
Vice President, Asset Management
Brown Shoe Company


On November 5th, 2012, I lost one of the most important and influential people in my life, my Dad. His name was Lloyd George Grander and he had a great 82 years, and I was able to enjoy my life by being part of his. As my sister and our families met with the Pastors to prepare for his Funeral, we naturally migrated to all of his accomplishments. Whether it was his Masters degree from Rutgers University, his 30 plus years of being treasurer of the local Rotary Club or being a principal and educator for over 40 years, we were proud of what he did. When we had exhausted everything we could about his career, memberships, and other accomplishments, the Pastor asked two simple questions:
 

1. What do you remember most about your dad, in other words, what are you going to miss the most?
2. What makes you smile when you think of him?

Those two questions had a profound impact on me and my thoughts shifted. Two things came to mind when I thought about the first question. First was his faith. My parents were both very active in our church throughout their lives. This was more than just attending Sunday service. They were involved in making our place of worship a better place. He did whatever it took, and sometimes, just whatever my mom wanted. He was service oriented and even though he touched so many lives, he was always very humble. Second was his love. My parents were married for 56 years. They truly were that couple that still held hands every day. Although years had put wrinkles on their faces and skin, they still looked at one another like it was the first time. The love they had for one another was beyond something I could put into words. His love for my sister and I, as well as our spouses and children was something I’m not sure everyone gets to experience, but wish we all could. The love that he had was also shared with the relationships he had with people he came into contact with. As we were telling people about my dad’s passing, I had the opportunity to contact his college roommate, (My dad graduated college over 60 years ago but maintained this relationship). Of course his roommate was sad about the news, but shared some memorable stories I had never heard before.

As I thought about the second question, it was obvious that my dad’s sense of humor was the thing that made me smile. He had a very funny sense of humor and would use it to tease people. While some things he said may be considered unfiltered, people that were receiving the teasing loved it because it came from dad. Not sure how he got away with some of the things he said, but I came to realize that they knew how much my dad cared for them, so it was never taken as offensive or in a manner that made people feel badly. Back when he was a Principal, his students would go out of their way to pass my dad in the hall so they could get teased. It made them feel special and connected with him. At my dad’s funeral one of the nurses at the Assisted Care Center he resided stated that my dad always asked how she was doing. She acknowledged being teased relentlessly by my dad, but followed up by saying that each time he asked her a question like how she was doing, he meant it in the most genuine manner. I also found out after his death he was known to give his treasured flashlight collection, generously to night shift nurses so they’d be safe going to their cars at night.

Like many of you, I have read countless books and articles on leadership, management, and personal development. Sometimes the most meaningful things in life don’t come from books but from experiences and people that you interact with day to day. When I think of my dad’s life, he lived the life I aspire to live. He had faith, love, integrity and purpose. He valued people and genuinely cared about the people he interacted with.
Imagine how differently we would conduct our day to day business with questions similar to the ones the pastor’s asked me... what do you enjoy most about the people you work with everyday? Do you ever tell them that or would you wait to eulogize them when clearly it’s too late? What makes you happy about your job and life? Do those two things compliment or conflict one other?

My dad was a great man, and I will miss him greatly. As he was a teacher in his career, he also taught me some of the most important things about life. To pay his life forward, it’s an honor to share some of his memories with you and our LP Community. My thought challenge for you is to reflect on the two questions above as it relates to you. How do you want people to remember you and what do you want them to smile about when thinking of you? What’s your life lesson?

Inaugural School Security Solutions Symposium Hosted by Axis Communications

One-day event provided a forum for local schools, law enforcement, industry consultants and leading technology vendors to discuss proactive school safety and emergency response plans
 

CHELMSFORD, Mass. – December 3, 2013 – Axis Communications, the market leader in network video surveillance, hosted its first School Security Solutions Symposium to discuss planning and technology trends in school security at the Axis Experience Center in Chelmsford, Mass. on Nov. 8.

Nearly 30 local school practitioners, law enforcement professionals, industry consultants and leading technology vendors participated in 10 sessions, including a focus group discussion, technology expo and two keynote presentations on implementing school safety and emergency response plans and an overview of Crime Prevention Through Environmental Design (CPTED).

Nicholas Pasquarosa, Jr., a Yarmouth Police school resource officer for the Dennis-Yarmouth Regional School District, spoke to attendees about the importance of creating a plan and gaining support from faculty, IT, facilities and first responders. “Don’t wait until an incident to bring your team together,” Pasquarosa said. “We hope the unimaginable never happens, but if it does, you need to be prepared. Every minute you spend planning and training now could make the difference in an emergency situation.”

School safety plans are not one size fits all and must be adapted to changing threats, Pasquarosa went on to explain. “You can’t copy and paste a security plan because every school is different. Create a plan specifically for your school, your faculty and your community,” he said.

James Smith, a security consultant and CPTED practitioner, discussed how drug activity, community crime rate, the presence of gangs and outsiders and even traffic patterns for vehicles and pedestrians can have significant impact on the ability to establish and maintain a safe school.

“Schools can implement security procedures and equipment upgrades identified through a CPTED audit on an incremental basis to reduce costs. Both existing and new school facilities under development can greatly benefit from new, more efficient lighting and other security technologies,” Smith said.

The forum agenda emphasized how planning and technology can address key areas of school security, including awareness, proactive, action, reaction and recovery. Attendees learned about some of the latest technologies for IP video surveillance from Axis, video synopsis technology from BriefCam, smartphone alert applications from ELERTS, Genetec video management software and outdoor lighting based physical security solutions from TOTUS Solutions.

“The unfortunate reality today is that schools are facing destruction of property, theft, bullying and even violence. It’s more important than ever for schools and local law enforcement to be proactive and develop school security plans,” said Steve Surfaro, security industry liaison, Axis Communications, Inc. “As schools continue to put measures in place, we felt it was important to provide a platform for these discussions and the opportunity to share best practices and learn from each other’s experiences.”

Axis plans to host similar educational symposiums in major U.S. cities throughout 2014. To learn more about Axis’ product offering for education facilities, please visit: www.axis.com/education.
