Session description

"No one wants to work, but we all have to -- so why not make it FUN!" 

This is a philosophy that was sparked by words from my father more than 20 years ago. It allowed me to go down a road to make the company culture the focus and make the financial statements just a report out on the results of our efforts. Creating an intentional culture and introducing Lean manufacturing tools to our people was the catalyst in the creation of the "Argus Tribe." The 'Argus Tribe' culture helped launch our company into a level of employee engagement that has had the media talking about us ever since.

My talk will show you how leadership starts and ends with culture. The 'Argus Tribe' culture is something you will want to learn about; but beware: this is not a formula, but a real-life example of how we built our culture from the ground up! Some things you will take away from my talk:

  • How to positively influence and build a culture from the top down and bottom up;
  • Build engagement and team buy-in at every level for a stronger and healthier team;
  • Motivate and unite through events and experiences; and
  • Learn a few new philosophies that may change the way you think about meetings, rewards, and your organizational structure.
