Living Doane Q & A's
What are the raindrops all about?
The idea came from the Gallup's employee recognition program and book by Donald O. Clifton, Ph.D., "How Full is Your Bucket?" According to Clifton, each of us has an invisible bucket. The more positive feedback we receive from others the fuller our bucket becomes, which provides us with a positive outlook and renewed energy. Our buckets also become fuller when we provide positive feedback to others. Negative feedback produces the opposite affect and can empty our buckets, which zaps our energy and undermines our will. The "Living Doane" program uses the raindrops to symbolize the idea of filling others and our own invisible buckets.
