As we continue our Summer of Excellence event, I'm thrilled to highlight the next in our line-up of Core Values – "Raise the Bar".

These are exciting times for DISA. Change is all around us, and while it can bring discomfort, it also presents opportunities waiting to be seized. Focus on these opportunities and look to elevate your contributions to the company and yourself. The next chapter of DISA's success will be directly attributed to the accumulation of each individual's effort, and each of us makes a difference.

"Raise the Bar" doesn't always mean a massive shift in our routines. The small, incremental improvements we make every day stack up over time. Imagine if each of us made one extra call, assisted one more client, or crossed one additional task off our lists today. As we concentrate on these small improvements in the areas that matter most, we raise our personal standards and elevate DISA's collective standards.

With this in mind, I encourage you to reflect on the question, "How can I raise the bar in my daily tasks?" It may be by striving for higher quality results, delivering exceptional client service, or ensuring quicker ticket resolution. Each of us will have a unique answer to this, and bringing this improved mindset to DISA will collectively make a significant impact. If we all honestly address "How can I better serve our clients?" and act on it, we'll create a positive ripple effect throughout the company.

In my short time with DISA, everyone I've had the privilege of working with has been dedicated, intelligent, and highly motivated; each is striving to make DISA even more successful. Every interaction has fortified my conviction in the bright future that awaits DISA. If we each raise our personal bar, the cumulative impact will be immeasurable. Let's all RAISE THE BAR and set the stage for an incredible journey.

As we close this message, I'd like to leave you with a quote that resonates with our current theme:

"We only get what we believe we deserve. Raise the bar, raise your standards, and you will receive a better outcome". - Joel Brown

Let's aspire to deserve more and achieve more together.

Thank you for your continued dedication and commitment. I am genuinely proud to be a part of this dynamic team.

One Team, One Future, One DISA
