Unofficial Positive Performance Indicators

At the KING AEROSPACE Companies we claim that we strive to satisfy our customers and meet their expectations. There is no doubt that sometimes we fall short of our objective, but it is not due to lack of commitment. Our performance and customers’ satisfaction can be measured by very formal and not so formal means.READ MORE

Level of Trust

I often try to verbalize to our KING AEROSPACE Team my heartfelt desire of the level of service and commitment we seek to demonstrate to each other, those we serve and those we encounter. It has taken me years to find the right words to describe the trust that I strive to achieve. Only recently have I identified two experiences that help me communicate what I seek. I want to share them with you.READ MORE

Got Something to Learn?

My Puerto Rican Grandmother could not read or write. My father’s mother lived the early part of her life in an orphanage in Dallas and didn’t graduate from high school. READ MORE

The Elements of Flight with a Little Extra

Every day, I work on being positive and realistic. One of my routines is to begin and end most days reading or listening to something positive and inspirational. Often I will share these tidbits of wisdom with others. Recently, I shared a story from one of my favorite speakers. He compared people to the elements of flight.READ MORE

What’s the Plan?

I think it’s safe to say that almost all of us, in each cycle of our lives think we know what we want.  Too often though, we don’t really think about the steps to take to get us there.  Regardless of what you want, you have to have a plan to make it successful.  So I ask myself and others “What’s the plan?”READ MORE

Thank God It’s a New Year

I am so very thankful for 2014, but I look forward to 2015!  For 22 years we at the KING AEROSPACE Companies have been getting prepared for 2015 in so many ways.  Over the past 22 years we have had our share of ups and downs with our relentless focus on always striving to do the right thing for the right reason.READ MORE

Tis the Season to be Jolly?

At Christmastime I am always full of mixed emotions and try to keep everything in perspective as best I can. I find it interesting to listen to the debates of whether it is proper to say “Merry Christmas” versus “Happy Holidays.”  I find it painful at times to be in traffic and to witness acts by people who are probably kind-hearted, but it isn’t apparent in their driving in the Dallas mall traffic.READ MORE

Sharing some Heartfelt Private Thoughts

Recently I was asked to share with my church congregation at their Sunday evening service.  I prayerfully accepted the request and decided to wear my KING AEROSPACE uniform to share some heartfelt words.  My uniform consists of khaki pants, a collared KING AEROSPACE blue polo work shirt with the KING AEROSPACE Gold Wings embroidered over my heart, along with dark brown Lucchese goat skin boots.  The following is the message that I attempted to deliver.READ MORE

Earning Your Wings

Living or simply existing?

dare-to-liveAre you living or just existing? Regardless of age, sex, education or resources what are you doing? Are you doing a hybrid of both? When the going gets tough or the challenges are many do you retreat into a simply trying to exist mode? READ MORE

Conscious Capitalism, Part II: Relationships

Recently, I wrote about an organization called Conscious Capitalism and the first of their four basic principles, Higher Purpose. This week, I’m writing about the second principle called Stakeholder Orientation. (The other two principles I will address later are Conscious Leadership and Conscious Culture.) Stakeholder Orientation is not a difficult concept to grasp – it’s recognizing your business is really a very intricate and interconnected web of important relationships.READ MORE

Conscious Capitalism: Purpose beyond profits

I always believed in a higher purpose in life and recently I learned that it’s called Conscious Capitalism. There is also an organization by the same name. This organization promotes a philosophy grounded on four basic principles: Higher Purpose, Stakeholder Introduction, Conscious Leadership and Conscious Culture.READ MORE

Running for Our Wounded Warriors

I used to be a runner and wish that I still was. Despite having knee surgery, back and shoulder surgery, I am handing in there on a treadmill every day for about 30 minutes five days a week. I truly wish that I could participate in a run to support a fantastic organization called Wounded Warrior Project. As you may know, our home office for KING AEROSPACE is in Addison in the Dallas/Fort Worth metro area. On Sunday, June 8, the Wounded Warrior Half Marathon & 10K will be held in Las Colinas, Texas.READ MORE
