FFL GuideMarks: 2012 Highlights
Continuing or theme of "Year in Review", we now take a look back at the Funds For Learning GuideMarks. We asked our E-rate Guides to pick their favorites from the past year and offer a little comentary to determine our top five pearls of wisdom from Funds For Learning CEO, John Harrington.
Below, in no particular order, are the top five FFL GuideMark posts from 2012:
1. Neatness Counts - July 30, 2012 - "I like the analogy used with the word search. All the information is in the puzzle, but it’s not the most efficient way to manage the information. This is easily applied to the E-rate puzzle and how the FFL guides can help."
2. Teamwork - January 23, 2012 - "Being a team is so much more than simply being a "group". FFL is a team and we rely on one another to accomplish a common goal - to provide high quality solutions for the needs of E-rate stakeholders."
3. Commitment - September 4, 2012 - "We may not face volcanoes, but we will face challenges in our work. We must stay committed to any promises we make and work to completion."
4. Professionalism - July 9, 2012 - "FFL is a professional service firm, staffed by professionals. We abide by a strong Code of Conduct even though there are no FCC regulations or USAC policies regarding Universal Service Funding consulting practices. Opinions are often formed by actions and publishing the FFL Code of Conduct was an action that spoke volumes. Taking the step to publicly publish the code shows that we are committed to helping our clients understand and effectively utilize the E-rate program, and comply with all of its rules."
5. Solution-Minded - November 19, 2012 - "The video included in the post is powerful and a great example of overcoming obstacles. The runner could have laid down and given up and no one would have blamed her. But she knew her capabilities and was set on succeeding in the face of resistance."
