We asked Froelich what "tools" he relies on daily to be the most effective, energetic and inspired at his job. Here's his Top 5:
My Blackberry: It's the ultimate integrated information and communication device. From task and information management to real-time communication, this little tool has helped me be a much more responsive executive. But I have learned that you have to control it or it will control you before you know it.
Scriptures: Daily reading provides me with the grounding, principles and inspiration I need to navigate a world where competing priorities can provoke short-sighted responses in our relationship with others.
Management Lit: "Built to Last" and "Good to Great," both by Jim Collins, are two classics that I refer to regularly to remind me that, to be great home builders, we need to build enduring organizations.
Gym bag: There is a direct correlation between the degree to which I get out of the office and exercise daily and my personal productivity. It not only helps relieve stress but burn off the extra calories I consume when I feel said stress!
Photo of my beautiful wife and five kiddies: A reminder of what matters most and that my job is just a means to an end after all is said and done.
