I am currently a part-time student and earlier this semester was asked to write a paper about a successful company and identify what makes this company successful. I chose to concentrate on Southwest Airlines. I had not given the company much thought prior to writing this paper but after reading several articles, two books and now this blog site, I must say that I am very impressed with the culture and leadership of this company. I am impressed that Colleen Barrett takes the time to contribute to the blog site. I am impressed that the company encourages such a strong and positive culture. And, I am most impressed with the stories of teamwork, shared knowledge, and shared respect. So, though it is unusual for me to contribute to a blog site, I just wanted to let you all know that I have enjoyed learning about this company. I applaud your success. And, I must say that I'm quite envious of what appears to be a fun working environment! I look forward to my next Southwest flight.
