The Zingerman’s community of businesses as discussed in Deep Dive 15 are led by Managing Partners (Owners) as discussed in Deep Dive 16. These Managing Partners come together at various times and will make decisions that affect the entire community of businesses. When a decision is to be made they make these by unanimous consensus. All employees are allowed to attend these meetings.
Back in September of 2014 they introduced the program to included 3 staff members in the Zingerman’s Partner Group Consensus. This is a big deal to give the employees more of a voice and to offer a different perspective to the group.
This post continues our ZingTrain webinar replays. This is the beginning of the 2nd series that I’ve called, Building a Great Team.
The first recording has a crazy echo and we won’t replay it here. The 2nd webinar is called 8 Terrific Tips to Tune up Your Team. If you find your team is experiencing the following, then you need to listen for some great ideas to help solve them:
Productivity is down
Energy seems flat
Interpersonal tension is up
“Fun” isn’t a word you’d use to describe coming to work
ZingTrain has graciously allowed me to replay their webinars on my channel. I’ve collected 16 of them into a series of deep dive business lessons. This is part two of series 1 on the broad topic of Visioning and Leadership. This gets into the specific topic of managing ourselves to be good leaders.
I’ve found in my discussions with leaders in the area of inspired and intentional organizations, self-reflection and starting with ourselves is a big part of creating a more human culture.
