How do dream teams make more money: “Heartbeat” leaders first workshop (Williamsburg, VA)

June 13, 2017 @ 8:00 am - June 14, 2017 @ 5:00 pm


This workshop will teach attendees high performance team theory, share lessons learned and best practices, and generate a rich learning environment to help any team improve their business performance. What do lean best practice companies have in common? “Heartbeat” leaders whose performance is the leading indicator of the core business metrics: team engagement, cost, schedule, quality and safety. We call them different names, like foreman, charge nurses or team leaders, but they serve the same key roles regardless of location, and they get the job done. If they have a good day, everyone has a good day. If they have a bad day, everyone has a bad day. This workshop will shine a spotlight on how to identify, train, prepare and develop heartbeat leaders so their first day is a performance day and not a “let’s see how this goes” day. Ultimately, these heartbeat leaders lead dream teams who understand that improving workforce productivity means lowering labor cost while increasing revenue, thus taking care of the team out of increased profit.
