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 […]

ROBA Part 2: Are your employees the TITS?

To continue with the TITS concept from my last post, we addressed some broad suggestions on how to keep your employees engaged. I wanted to further define what I would suggest in getting authentic and useful feedback from your employees to improve your business for all stakeholders. Now for customers, who are just as important […]

Can I measure a ROBA: Return on Being Awesome?

No, I’m not objectifying women body-parts because its an acronym, but it got your attention, yes? As I’ve given credit to a few very special people in helping me realize how to embrace and implement personal change, I wanted to also discuss how organizations, groups, or companies should be given credit for providing personal change. […]

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 […]

Going for the “W”

I am going to appear to be going slightly off topic than what I usually write about, but since the balance between your personal and business life is so vital in having a fulfilled life, I wanted to share something personal. I love the idea of a recovery versus a rebound. I love the idea […]

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 […]

Read the fine print on your ticket?

What I meant by “guarantees” in my last post was that there are certain requirements you’ll want to determine within your change improvement process that you can NOT compromise on. I understand there “are no guarantees in life.” But, if you’re paying for an outside vendor to help you with implementing improvements within your business, […]

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 […]

Quality vs Quantity: should that even be a choice?

I had a lecture in my Production and Operations class with Dr. Ron Lembke this past week on Quality. When the topic was introduced, (shamefully) I groaned. I reacted this way because my current job is within the Quality department for a dietary supplements company and they’re planning on making some massive improvements throughout the […]
