Being an excellent communicator isn’t simply about speaking. Listening and asking questions are central to our ability to seek information, understand one another, and act with intention. In Q3, our Communicate Award Winner used his ability to ask thoughtful questions and proactively communicate to impact his peers, team, and, in the end, our customers!
Congratulations to our Communicate Award Winner, Dane Denker!
Daily, Dane interacts with a wide variety of departments at Clickstop. With so much collaboration, it can be easy to forget to deliver all the information you have or request all the information you need to get your work done. Not only does Dane focus on seeking to understand by asking questions, but his respectful approach prompts others to consider how they could improve how they work and the work they do. “Dane treats everyone with respect and takes the time to understand what people are saying,” says his nominator. “He asks questions to make us think about what we are doing, and what we want to get out of the work.”
I try very hard to communicate well across all the departments I work with. It’s always nice to see others around you recognize that.” -Dane
Dane’s impact doesn’t stop with his teammates. With his role as Quality and Safety Manager, Dane directly impacts our customers. Dane notifies team members of issues that could impact our customers, while also responding in a timely manner to needs as they arise. In the larger scheme of things, Dane’s attention to detail and quality allows him to align his teammates around shipment, packing, and quality requirements, which saves time and reduces customer complaints.
As fast we the world moves today, we are thankful for Clickstoppers, like Dane. His focus on excellent communication allows us to positively impact our teams and customers!

If you could switch lives with any person for one day, who would you choose?
Right now, probably Joel Salatin. I’m interested in learning about his farming style and regenerative agriculture. It would be cool to see how he works and manages his farm even if just for a day.
