Family Oriented - Open door policy for all  

Leonard's has offices throughout the country and all of them feel that they are a part of this unique family. They are confident in calling any of the family members or anyone else in the corporate office for direction or advice. Our aim is to make sure that our customers are part of this family. Whenever an issue arises, we want to make sure that our customers feel just as comfortable as we do about calling and talking to someone. Leonard's creates an environment which provides not only direction but an "open door" policy which strengthens the family bond of agents and employees throughout the company.

The Johnson family supplies the leadership and direction that is needed to run Leonard's Express. Throughout our daily duties we all have issues that need attention. At Leonard's our family environment allows for anyone to seek advice from other departments or individuals to clearly navigate through these problems. The "open door" policy allows everyone equal time whether it's a personal issue or business related.

This philosophy has been successful in bonding the agents, independent contractors, technicians, company drivers and office personnel at Leonard's

Respect - Thought as a cornerstone of who we are  

Collaboration must be thought of as a cornerstone, not only for yourself but others. Without it, cooperation, compassion and understanding are impossible.

Leonard's Express considers respect one of our highest core values. If we do not have respect for our customers, our employees, and our agents, then how do we expect to achieve excellence? We know that the people in our industry are often under-appreciated and their talents and dedication are undervalued. At Leonard's Express, we want a company that gives these hard working people the respect they deserve.

We understand that in order to succeed, we need to help our customers succeed. We know it should start with genuine respect. Great companies are built upon and powered by respect-respect for customers and respect for each other. We respect our customers. We believe in them. We understand them. We trust them. We form personal relationships with them. We take risks with them. We work with them to help them succeed.

Without it cooperation, compassion and understanding are impossible. Without it isolation and failure become the norm. To show respect for others as well as yourself demonstrates a level of maturity and knowledge that will eventually lead to the greatness we all deserve and desire.

Communication - Accurate and timely  

Accurate, timely and thorough communication to both internal and external customers is essential to the success of our customers and our company.

Leonard's Express believes one of the key ingredients to the success of our customers and our company is by having open and honest communication. The communication needs to be thorough, timely and accurate to be effective. Having just one or two of these elements is not enough. All three are required to make effective communication a success.

We use many forms of communication in our daily lives. We should always strive to be as precise and accurate no matter what the form of communication is, verbal or written. We utilize today's technology to the fullest extent possible to communicate effectively.

We treat communication as a two way street. Not only do we need to be great communicators, we also need to be great listeners. Sometimes, the most important aspect of communication is listening.

Communication is sometimes one of the weakest spots in an organization, no matter how good that organization may be. We should always strive to have better communication.

The stronger our communication is with our customers and our staff, the stronger relationship we have, and the more we grow.
