Press for Success _ Far be it from me to dampen your enthusiasm, but you should give yourself every opportunity for success. That's what the planning part of the process of creating your business plan will do. By the time you have pressed your way through it, you will not merely have some neatly arranged document to keep on file, you will have a working tool that addresses the essential factors that influence your future.
All the years in those various positions offered great opportunities for leading, teaching, training, and hands on support for empowering managers and workforces. Environments were created that made it possible for people to reach levels of success they never thought possible. Success came because of the use of real leadership, lean principles, employee involvement, a trusting environment, good communication, continuous improvement, and solid operating systems. The results were people working toward an error free workplace, waste reduction, and a very positive attitude toward meeting goals and expectations. This resulted in labor content reductions, major reductions in labor turnover, major increases in inventory turns, reductions in cycle times, improved customer relations, strong teams, and improved employee satisfaction. I have had the good fortune to have practiced and proven that creating the right environment will cause people to want to participate in helping organizations meet their goals and visions because it is an environment that lets them build success for themselves as well helping everyone else build theirs. I believe strongly that you cannot motivate people but that the right environment is what motivates people.
