As the great Ted Lasso once said, “Taking on a challenge is a lot like riding a horse, isn’t it? If you’re comfortable while you’re doing it, you’re probably doing it wrong.”
Just like Lasso, the team at Franklin Window & Door never shies away from a challenge. Whether it be coaching a new sport in a new country or innovating a feat of window engineering for ever bigger walls of glass, those who follow the Lasso Way are always ready to dive in.
Like so many other watchers, the team at Franklin Window & Door were caught up by the story of Ted Lasso with his tenacity, team-oriented thinking, and most of all, positivity. They were so inspired by the man with the killer mustache that in 2022, they dreamt up their own L.A.S.S.O. Way:
L - Level Up
We take everything to the next level, we never settle.
A - All In
We drink the Kool-Aid. We are completely bought in and give every project our 100% all the time.
S - Swag On
Yep, we might be a little cocky, but we work hard so we can have a little swagger in our step. Some may say we channel our inner Jamie Tart!
S - Show Me
Give us the opportunity to show you how we do things and we know you’ll be impressed. We don't just talk the talk; we walk the walk!
O - Own it
If we make a mistake, we own it. We do what it takes to make sure clients and partners are well taken care of and satisfied. No pointing fingers here!
Slap these on a poster and get ‘em up in the locker room!
Since putting the L.A.S.S.O. Way in action, the Franklin Window & Door team keeps these values in mind throughout their hiring process. The team believes that hiring for culture is the best way to build a team that represents your company. You can train skills, but you cannot change someone’s personality. You must BELIEVE in your team, your community, and yourself.
These values are the driving force behind Franklin Window & Doors’ decisions and behaviors and direct the team on a daily basis. They give the team the opportunity to look at challenges and issues as potential learning and growth drivers, not road blocks.
“As the man once said, the harder you work, the luckier you get.” – Ted Lasso
The Franklin Window & Door team embodies these values every day, whether they are taking things to the next level with a creative solution to a builder’s design challenge or owning the process in the field by taking responsibility every step of the way. With the L.A.S.S.O. Way guiding them through any and all challenges, they know they can make lemonade out of lemons.
As Richmond reporter Trent Crim shared with his readers, “If the Lasso way is wrong, it’s hard to imagine being right.”
