Come on get “Hired”

To go off my most recent post on going through the interview process and what a great experience I had with my interviewers, I wanted to talk about what I did to get hired. Also, I couldn’t pass up the play on words with a good song by Matt Nathanson. I know there are some […]

The Interview Process: What game are you playing?

Recently, I’ve been on the job hunt again and I’ve fortunately had some great success by getting invited to interview with some incredible groups and people. One critical thing I’ve learned is when it comes to evaluating these companies, how they handle the interviews can provide a clear picture of how the company runs and how […]

Big Traditions can still make room for positive change

Empowerment as described in my last post was talking about giving/receiving permission to feel confident or capable of completing a task and the question I raised was who gives that permission. Not to step back into that discussion too much, I wanted to take the concepts of empowering your company as a whole by empowering […]

Growth is Change

So to round off my thoughts from my last two posts about personal growth, (Going for the W and Personal and Business Growth: what’s the difference?) I wanted to share a thought that I’ve struggled and continue to struggle with, which can be applicable to anyone in any situation: “be the change you wish to see […]

Personal and Business Growth: what’s the difference?

To go off of my post from yesterday and the one about cross-training, I wanted to combine the two conclusion concepts together to provide a thought on how to mentor and lead your manufacturing team into a more nurturing and productive culture. I know in my recent termination and breakup I was not completely free […]

Is your company training to be “Cross-fit?”

Cross-training is much more than just a popular exercise regimen. It’s a good business practice, especially in manufacturing, to have employees be competent in multiple roles in case of call-ins or no-shows so that production is not hindered from one process not being up and running. The value behind cross-training is undeniable and easy to […]

You’re booked!

So the second portion of getting to your ideal situation via destination postcard after making a plan of action is of course ordering the ticket. Booking your transportation to your grand destination, a.k.a. investing in the method, program, or process that will get you and/or your team to the ideal situation, will require a lot […]

Goliath’s Strategy: Qlty vs Qnty Part 3

Now enters Goliath: the other extreme from my last post about quality. As opposed to the biblical tale, “Goliath” manufacturers don’t “lose” in the realm of quality assurance practices. They just have a different set of challenges to deal with than the smaller “David” companies. Instead of dealing with gaps in resource availability, bigger manufacturers […]

David’s Strategy: Quality vs Quantity Part 2

To expand further on my previous blog about quality, I wanted to brazenly delve into what I would suggest in how to implement the “ownership” mindset within your team. But, different circumstances (a.k.a age and size of the manufacturer/company) will demand different strategies in order to be successful. Since my gills are still a wee […]

Organizing Habits

So I have to apologize: I got so excited with the experience I had earlier this week with brewing my first beer batch and how helpful Matt was that I forgot to mention my thoughts on manufacturing concepts from that experience! Once you’ve forgiven me, I have to tell you that not only was I […]
