Don Tyler, New Year--New Attitudes
As we replace the wall calendar and the doodle sheet that covers our desktop, it is a good time to review procedures, policies and priorities. This is the time of year that our employees seem to be the most open to new ideas—and the most accepting of change. To maximize this opportunity, many operations schedule company-wide meetings to communicate with all the employees and provide a forum for feedback and discussion.
