As the Executive Director of a non-profit organization I am always looking for the best value when it comes to equipment and service. Often it is a struggle to find that one company that can give you both at a level our organization can afford. I am proud to say that for the past 4 years we have been very pleased with Yuma Office Equipment. They worked within our budget, pairing us with the best copying and fax equipment, along with a comprehensive maintenance agreement. Offering same day assistance if something goes wrong, and knowing that their technicians are right here in town has added to my belief that they offer the best value. We appreciate everything that Craig Crossland and his staff do for Hospice of Yuma and recommend Yuma Office Equipment to any business looking to add new copying and faxing equipment.

A big part of being a leader is speaking to those expected to follow you. Here are some communication tips to help you sound like a leader.
Pause, think, answer – It’s difficult to sound confident and trustworthy when you’re constantly filling gaps in your speaking with filler words such as “um” and “uh.” An effective way to eliminate filler words from your vocabulary is by pausing and thinking before speaking, giving yourself a moment to gather your thoughts.
Use clear language – Leaders are often required to speak about tough or difficult topics. Using direct language that is easy to understand shows confidence and stability in a leader.
Be engaging – Leaders should be entertaining when they speak so what they say resonates with their audience. Be passionate while speaking.
Have solutions to offer – Rather than just identifying problems, good leaders are always prepared to offer a resolution to them as well. Otherwise, you’re merely finger-pointing, which is rarely an effective tactic.
