11:00 AM Employee empowerment: Using military tools to support your organizational culture

Expecting everyone on your team to know what decisions they can make at their level may be common assumption, but it may not always be true.  If you would like to learn how to empower your employees to make informed decisions and save valuable time in your day, this session will provide valuable insights in:
·         Using a version of “Standing Orders” to empower your personnel
·         Using your mission statement to better define your inclusion of your personnel in your decision-making processes
·         Encouraging retention of employees and their tacit knowledge through autonomous practices
·         Supporting innovative thought without fear
