Here is Your Chance to Be Heard…Please Read

The mission of ConnectingDirectors.com has been, and will continue to be, to push the envelope of innovation in the funeral profession. We have strived to publish and create content that pushes the profession forward in a positive way.

There are a lot of changes taking place in this profession and it is critical that funeral professionals continue to evolve and adapt to the changes being set-fourth by the consumer. What we want to know (and we don’t do a great job focusing on this) is how are these changes affecting you as the funeral professional both personally and from a business perspective? What are your concerns about the progression of the profession?

To start collecting this information and getting a perspective from the funeral professionals in the trenches we have entered into an agreement with the Institute for Stress Management & Performance Improvement (ISMPI) to conduct an in depth survey of the Funeral Services Profession.

It will be a completely private survey conducted by a 3rd party, and NO personally identifiable information will be available to either ConnectingDirectors.comor ISMPI. This allows everyone to answer candidly and honestly.This survey is designed to cut across Independents and Corporates - Cemeterians and Funeral Directors - ICCFA,NFDA and all the other major Organizations and Associations.

This is in an attempt to get a clearer picture of the wants, needs, opportunities and challenges currently facing the Funeral Services Profession.The overall results of the survey will be shared first with you on ConnectingDirectors.com once it has been completed.

The survey will be a 3 step process.

First step, starting today, you can be a part of the Survey Question Creation Process - this is a short "pre-survey" questionnaire that asks your opinion on what should be included in the Survey. You can fill out the pre-survey call for questions at https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/HY5T7R6

The second step will be the actual Survey. Part of the Survey will be created based on the ideas and suggestions we receive from the "pre-survey call for questions." We will announce that the Survey is ready and post the link on ConnectingDirectors.com as soon as it is available.

The final step will be a very short set of follow up questions based on the answers to the general Survey.

Once these 3 steps have been completed, the data will be compiled, analyzed and released on ConnectingDirectors.com.

I ask everyone to PLEASE become involved with this Survey Process. This is your opportunity to be heard and potentially have an impact on the future of your Profession.

As a "thank you" to those who complete the main survey, you will be given a link for a FREE download of Timothy J. O'Brien's the " 7 Steps to Mastering Time" a Power Point presentation on getting the most out of each day.

Thank you,
