Dr. J. Carr, Contributor – Ivy League Consulting™

Joel R Carr DO MPH MBAI remember when Ivy League Works™ was just getting started. It was fun, exciting, and team-spirited. Guess what? It still is!

What’s great about contributing to Ivy League Works™ is that it doesn’t feel like I’m part of a company, but rather, a family. No boring suits. No ties. No corporate culture negativity. Each team member plays a valuable part of the whole making the flavor of the group sparkle and savor each assigned project.

The resulting team culture (some of it linked by the Internet) is as though we’re getting ready to just hang out and have a fun time doing what we love to do. And, in reality, it IS fun!  Sure!  We do roll up our sleeves and get busy excitedly bent on exceeding client expectations.  Still, the means to the goal is always to have lots of fun!

Yup!  Sometimes its sharing jokes to get the positive mindset energized.  Other times, when the Pomodoro “mental break” timer goes off, it’s a healthy round of electronic games, shared for all.  Someone is always volunteering break-time, brain teasers about TV shows, movies, and other trivia to keep our creative juices flowing. But, I have to say that the gourmet coffee breaks are a thing to live for ’cause Starbucks has nothing on these offerings!
