“Underlying many of the problems of humanity is our inability to even talk about our problems.” [Paavo Pylkkänen] Physicist David Bohm had the capacity to abstract what he learned from his work into the larger arena of meaningful living. His way of being in the world doesn't allow a person to avoid participating or being changed by that participation. To read Bohm is to learn to think and talk again, and we need practice to do both.

Are you a tough manager with high expectations, or do you have a “rep” as an easy rater of performance?

Very good service from the crew. They are working hard, but the back-end systems in support of the people clearly suck. The system went down, the Manager had to re-enter the information again. When I asked if the system will store the information (such as my insurance policy) so we don't have to repeat this process again when I come in, the Manager indicated No - the data must be entered all over again every time. So it is very clear to any customer that the IT systems on the back-end do a poor job of supporting people on the front end. Every company is a technology company and this is critical to great customer service. Enterprise Car Rental needs a major IT upgrade! A second problem that is clear is how "lawyers" are in charge of the process. Each time you come in, you must prove your residence with the most recent copy of a utility bill. You would think in this day and age of confirmations, Enterprise could confirm once online and not hassle the customer with such a burden of proof each and every time they rent a car. Once again, this is not the fault of the front line staff, but more on the back-end of the process and systems.
