Our major focus is BUILDING People! 

Tour area highlights.

  • Morning Meetings (Focused on 4 key objectives) Setting the tone for the day
  • Shake out the day (Identifying clear work objectives for the day and seeing what areas, need protection by the rest of the team to accomplish the day's work)
  • Lean Discussion - Set a Challenge for the Day -
  • Mindset over Skill Set - Our focus is challenging the way people think so they can GROW! A proper mindset is more valuable than a rigid skill set. (Learn, Unlearn, Relearn)
