“Come on, make a decision.” Has anyone ever said this to you? Most of the time, it’s because options are being weighed without being 100% confident in any of them.
The reality is, we’re almost always making decisions between options that are most likely right and most likely wrong. Seeking 100% certainty in all things leads to what we call, “analysis paralysis.” This often leads to frustration for the one making the decision, and the ones most closely tied to the issue seeking resolution.
Speed and Effectiveness
Throughout Q2, Nick did a good job of being “Decisive.” As an example, he recently saw a need to improve the layout of the shipping area, identified a solution, created the plan and executed on it. After all, a plan without action is at best a good intention.
Through this process, Nick was able to articulate what he was trying to do, separate what needed to be done well now and what could be improved later, and didn’t second-guess his decision. Well done, Nick!

How did you feel upon being recognized for this award?
I was excited since I have not won a core Trait award before. I was also happy to see that others around the company are recognizing me for the work that I accomplish.
What do you believe has led up to this recognition?
I have always been one to jump right into a new project or task with excitement. I also try to strategically plan the necessary steps that will need to be taken to ensure success.
Why is this Core Trait important to the success of Clickstop?
The main reason this core trait is important to Clickstop is because if someone is doing this well, they will know what needs attention now and what can be improved upon later. They will also be able to think of new solutions to challenges they have had in the past. They can also make tough decisions without second guessing themselves.
What brought you to Clickstop?
Right after high school I asked Tim G if there was a part time job out in the warehouse available for me, He said yes and brought me right in. Working here for a few years I then realized this is the place for me and I fit right in with everyone else.

It’s the people that keep me here. I really do enjoy working with each and every one of you every day.

What is the coolest/craziest place you ever been to?
Electric Forest would have to be the craziest place I have ever been to. It is a 4 day, 5 night music festival in Rothbury Michigan. This year was the first year I have gone and it was life changing! I plan to go every year they hold this fest.
Do you have a nickname(s)? If so, what is it? Why is it your nickname?
My nickname is Twitty. A few years back one of my room mates – also named Nick – decided he wanted to call me by my last name, Conrad. He also thought the old country singers name was Conrad Twitty, not Conway Twitty. So Twitty stuck ever since then and to be honest I kind of like the name.
What is your favorite activity that you like to do with your family?
I really enjoy camping with my family. Tent camping is probably my favorite because you are out in nature and you don’t have all the luxuries like a camper. It is not always the easiest to tent camp, but I feel it is the most rewarding.
