Getting Better, One Person at a Time

Presented By:

Colin Rusel

Session Abstract:

At ATC people are our biggest asset.  As a company we have identified root causes to gaps that exist, implemented countermeasures, set goals and established metrics to measure to track our progress.  However, all of this is dependent on the people at ATC.   Our success depends on flexible, effective, capable leaders and teams.  And we have gaps between capabilities of leaders and teams and work expectations we need them to meet.  Growing leaders and teams is therefore where our people development energy has been directed in 2017.  Come learn from the failures and successes we experienced this year.  Bring your questions and join a conversation around how we all get better at what we are trying to do.

Learning Objectives: 

In this session you will learn …

  • How the ATC Lifetime Employee Roadmap (LER) is changing the way we work with people.
  • How lean leader development works with the Lean Management System (LMS) at ATC.
  • How ATC is working to equip leaders so they can create flexible efficient teams that can sustain the gains we are making.
