This month Our Tutorial will offer the opportunity for you to work directly with DFW metroplex recruiters on your strategy for new job opportunities. Although this will be especially important to those of you currently not working looking for employment it is also great for all of us to keep resumes current and understand what the job market outlook is for this coming year and beyond.

He has served as project manager for the implementation of ISO 9001/AS9100 for 5 companies.

The Company analyzes and proposes suggestions on the continual improvement of his clients’ quality and/or human resources systems – from implementation to revision.

Don is a Senior Member of the American Society for Quality, and a long-time member of the Society for Human Resources Management.

Don’s Presentation Highlights:

  • The Importance of Leadership
  • The Employee Engagement Factor
  • 59% more growth in revenue per employee is doable
  • Critical strategy: selecting and deploying the right managers/employees
  • Development of the Employee Engagement Culture

Researchers have made huge strides in understanding human behavior and motivation over the past decade. Few businesses actually apply these discoveries when strategizing for improvement or even retention of “star” employees. The result: companies are missing opportunities for growth and revenue because they do not understand the impact of human nature in the workplace.

The Goal

  • The goal is clear, implement and sustain a performance excellence system with the understanding that it will make money.
  • A senior management team intent on improving its organizational practices has a choice of models to emulate. They can follow the 18th century model and ask, “Who should we involve?” or they can go directly to the 21st century model and ask, “Who can we afford to exclude?” The answer is “Nobody!”
  • 100% involvement in any continual improvement, or performance excellence, effort is essential. How do we get there?

 

ALSO THIS MEETING WILL FEATURE A VISIT FROM THE EASTER BUNNY!!!!

So please do look forward to prizes that will be left behind such as Books, Totes, a Hotel stay for two, complimentary dinner meeting tickets to future meetings as well as a few other surprise gifts including cash money!!!!!!!
