42 - A Simple Phrase to Improve Excellence in Your Workplace
How do you define excellence in the workplace? We want to make our ministries, businesses, and departments places of excellence. Excellence honors God and inspires people. In the 1988 film “Who Framed Roger Rabbit”, there is a scene where the detective bumps the cartoon Roger Rabbit against a hanging lamp. The lamp begins to swing back and forth.

Only 2% of the population ever realizes the extra effort made by the animators. “Bump the Lamp “ has now become a phrase to indicate someone going above and beyond even if it won’t be recognized or appreciated. How can we best lead our teams of people to aim for the 2% and help our teams “bump the lamp“? Listen to Kevin give 3 ways that this idea helps us achieve excellence.
