If You Lead Them, Results Will Come
As a business leader, our first role should be to lead the people, and to manage the process second. If we are consistent and effective in the first, the people will support the second. This is the new paradigm of organizations that have embraced transformational change and have succeeded at aligning their organizations without a formal “re-org” or major shift in structure. Organizational alignment, in this discussion, is focused on the natural order of decision making that impacts the tactical day-to-day process of manufacturing. Decisions that guide optimization of existing processes should be made as close to the action as possible. Decisions which impact long-term strategic objectives, in contrast, should be made at the collaborative management levels. This webinar will teach you how to align your organizational structure in order to create a culture of accountability and results through process governance, results-focused performance expectations, decision making structures and performance reinforcing systems.

Jumping Ship on the Old Leadership Style
Hosted By David Marquet
Join David Marquet, former Captain of the USS Santa Fe, as he explains why leaders should jump ship on the old leadership style where leaders give orders and employees follow. Giving orders only creates followers without energy, passion or ownership. As work moves from physical to intellectual, employees require control, competence and clarity of purpose to be productive. In this new world of work, employees lead themselves and leaders create the structure for them to do so. Marquet implemented this new style aboard the Santa Fe and so powerful were the results, that noted author Dr. Stephen Covey rode his ship and wrote about it in The 8th Habit, stating “Never before had I observed such empowerment.”

Education and Training:

Training Speeds Continuous Improvement
Hosted By Joe Mikes and Tara Holwegner
How does your organization ensure changes improve performance?

To move from the desired state to the future state, organizations must document the technical changes in a process, the objectives for each role affected and create training plans to help employees meet those objectives. In this 30-minute webinar, our business process improvement specialists will show you how the right training plan will feed production in your facility.

"Training the New Workforce: SMEs and Learning Professionals, Unite!"
Hosted by Tara Holwegner
Many of today’s organizations face a departing workforce that holds expertise and knowledge gained over many years in their profession. Faced with the wave of a new workforce, there is a push for this expert knowledge to be captured and institutionalized as training and shared as organizational learning. When training the new workforce, working with a team or partner is crucial. However, this requires working with different personality styles, work styles and communication styles. At times, working with a partner can seem like a challenge; however, working with others invariably leads to a better end product. In this 30-minute webinar, Tara Holwegner will introduce a 3-step process that can help SMEs and learning professionals navigate the challenges and focus on the opportunities to gain from working together to achieve the best end product. Like the Texas 2-step, working to deliver the best end product is a dance. Join the Life Cycle Institute’s IMPACT webinar to learn how the SME 3-step can help you “dance” your way to project success.

Reliability Engineering:

A Reliable Plant is a Safe Plant is a Cost-Effective Plant
Hosted by Ron Moore
Safety is a top priority in most organizations, which is evident by the policies, standards, and systems in place to support safety initiatives.  They are committed to enforcing these policies, which typically state that all injuries are preventable, and we are each responsible for preventing injuries, among other things.  
 
However, commitment to safety is questioned by the fact that most are not committed to reliability. During this webinar, Ron Moore will review data from operating plants that demonstrate:

  • The Relationship between Reliability and Safety, Costs, and Environmental Performance
  • A process model for assuring reliability
  • Models for leadership, alignment, and managing cultural change for assuring both reliability and safety, which are mutually dependent.
