Inspired by Geoffrey James
Business is an ecosystem, not a battlefield.
Average companies build armies of "troops" to order about, see competitors as "enemies," and treat customers as "territory" to be conquered.
We are a relationship-driven company that values teamwork, adapts easily to new markets and can quickly form partnerships with each other, customers and even competitors.
A company is a community, not a machine.
Average companies do not see their employees as people. They create "my way or the highway" environments that are rigid and fear driven.
We see team members as a collection of individual hopes and dreams, all connected to a common purpose. We encourage and inspire employees to celebrate individual, team, company and community success.
Leadership is service, not control.
Average companies want employees to do exactly what they are told. They create condescending "Command and Control" environments where personal initiative is unacceptable.
We value leaders who encourage collaboration, diversity of ideas and provide the proper resources to empower their teams to get the job done. We also value humble and patient leaders over arrogant and ill-tempered ones.
We consider each other as peers regardless of job title.
Average companies treat some employees as inferior to others based on organizational charts.
We treat every employee as if they were the most important person at the bank. Excellence is expected everywhere, ideas and suggestions from all are encouraged and "the best idea wins." As a result, employees at all levels take charge of their own destinies.
Motivation comes from vision, not from fear.
Average companies use fear as power to motivate. Employees and managers alike become paralyzed, stagnant and unable to be forward thinking and take risks.
We inspire people to see a better future and how they will be part of it. As a result, employees work harder because they believe in our goals, truly enjoy what they are doing and know they'll share in the rewards.
Change equals growth, not pain.
Average companies see change as both complicated and threatening. They delay necessary changes until they are in a desperate situation and it's too late.
We embrace change and see it as an inevitable part of life. We are aware that change is not always easy but we understand that success is only possible if we all embrace new ideas. It is important for us to work constructively and support each other during change.
Core Values are embraced, they are not just words on a piece of paper.
Average companies talk about the importance of core values, however, management teams at average companies rarely live by them. This leads to the core values becoming a joke for employees.
Our Core Values were developed with input from the Employee Satisfaction Task Force and we expect that every person in every position actively support them. Our Core Values encourage us to act in a manner that "WOWS" others and provide us with the opportunity to guide our actions that allow us to become who we want to be. We take pride in our Core Values and strive to live them each day.
Work should be fun, not mere toil.
Average companies believe people only work for a paycheck and discourage camaraderie, job satisfaction and happiness. They fully expect employees to resent having to work therefore everyone behaves accordingly.
We see work as something that should be enjoyable. We encourage our employees to be happy by embracing their dreams, connecting with teammates and celebrating our successes. It's more than a paycheck; we want our teammates in jobs that can and will make them truly happy.

DR. LAMARCHE IS RETIRING SEPTEMBER 1ST, 2022 from Forum Dental Group!
"When I began the Forum Dental Group in 2010, I had no idea that I would be blessed with so many wonderful and committed patients who would give me such a sense of family. I am honored by your loyalty and hugely impressed by your willingness to accept responsibility for your own dental health through your participation as a collaborator.
You have challenged and educated me, provided me with 12 years of your faithful visits, brought me your children and grandchildren, and shared your lives, tough times, and good humor with me. It is for these reasons that I love the practice of dentistry and having served you all these years. It is now time after 46 years of practice, to move into the next chapter of my life, spending more time with my lovely wife Lena, son and daughter.
There have been several dentists that have expressed a desire to take over your care and selecting the right one was no easy task. This person would have to share my commitment to honor the human body by using no dental materials that are even remotely controversial. This professional who would share my determination to involve patients as equal partners as in their own health care and who would likewise respect the contribution of the staff members who support them.
Finally, I found Dr, Meng-Hsiu “Matthew” Ho. Who in turn, had examined several other dental offices in his search for the right practice. Dr. Ho shares my belief that each patient is like no other. He agrees that the concerns they have regarding their health and treatment is approached in a way that acknowledges not only to their unique physical needs, but to their emotional requirements as well. Dr. Ho will take over your care from September 1, 2022. I will be reviewing all your charts and specific needs with him to identify your individual needs. I will also be available for consultation, should you feel a need.
It is my heartfelt wish that you will trust Dr. Ho with your dental healthcare just as you have trusted me. The decision to leave my practice has been a difficult one for me but made easier by the confidence in knowing your care is in Dr. Ho's capable and experienced hands. My family members and I will become Dr. Ho's patients and I look forward to seeing you in the reception area as a fellow patient, rather than from behind the mask as your dentist.
Please accept my deepest appreciation for your many years of loyalty and friendship. I will always treasure them both. I wish you good health and much happiness.
Michael LaMarche, DDS, PLLC
