At Clickstop, to be responsible means…
- Your coworkers know you are reliable, honest, and trustworthy.
- You have an honest awareness of yourself, your relationships, and performance.
- You are aware of how your attitude and emotions affect others.
- You don’t offer excuses; you don’t accept them.
- You reflect on your past performance; learning, improving and growing.
- You know and utilize your strengths, and those of your team.
In Q3 of 2020, Adam Durflinger exemplified the behaviors associated with our ‘Responsible’ core trait.
Commitment and Follow Through
When something is delegated to Adam – aka Durf – you don’t have to worry if he will get it done or not. He is responsible in all aspects: timeliness, quality, completion. If he says he will do it, he does it!
Durf also takes time to daily reflect on his performance. It’s about challenging himself to improve and grow each day, and refusing to offer or accept excuses. These behaviors were key to Adam D. exceeding Q3 expectations in the new SDC role. His self-discipline to execute on tasks, log notes, and make phone calls is driving results that have exceeded the goal. Adam has also jumped in to assist with, and has made progress toward, winning some key accounts.
Adam, thank-you for your commitment to great results and for responsibly pursuing it. We are pleased to recognize you as the Q3 2020 ‘Responsible’ award winner. Well done!
What is your role at Clickstop?
Sales Development Consultant-SDC
How long have you worked at Clickstop?
About 1.5 years
What effect has this recognition had upon you?
When receiving recognition from peers it motivates me and makes me set the bar higher for myself.
How has our high expectation of aligned action with our Core Values impacted you inside and outside of work?
I think it helps you when making decision that you may be indecisive on. You can take a step back and think differently about it and will help drive you in the right direction.
How have you taken ownership of your growth?
I focus in on how I can be better than the previous day. At the end of each day, I reflect, take some notes, create a list, and then set out the next day to improve on those items.
Who has helped to challenge and inspire your growth during your Clickstop journey?
I would say the whole team really, everyone always striving to do their best lights a fire for me to want to be/do better.
You’re in the circus, would you rather be the person with their head inside the lion’s mouth or getting shot out of the cannon?

Not an object but a situation – the pure joy having to get up and watch the morning news to see if school was having a snow day.
What was the best thing before sliced bread?
A whole loaf of Bread.
If you could ask your pet 3 questions, what would they be?
Why do you eat socks? What do the socks taste like? Is there something I can do to stop you from eating socks?
