This leadership workshop establishes a foundation to improve the execution and profitability of a contracting company. We will discuss this process via leadership practices and a set of fundamentals, metrics and disciplines designed for operators. We will focus on establishing a clear and concise vision for a company, the core values and behaviors to eradicate adult day care issues, establishing a culture of performance, goal setting for each team member, the creation of a plan to attain those goals, the structure for implementing best practices including communication ideas, and a proven method for getting all your team members completely aligned to the goals. We will review how to transition the operator out of a do-it-all role and begin to delegate responsibility to a team of leaders and mid managers. This is a powerful operators workshop designed to highlight how to lead well and drive execution, not just concepts. All the tools to do so are included.
