Sometimes you realize that everything you have done in the past has been preparing you for the current moment – that’s my story. After 32 years with Lance Inc. in the roles of Safety Director, Chip Plant Superintendent, Operations Analyst, Director of Compensation and 6 years as the Senior Director of Training and Organizational Development, I have developed a “real world understanding” of what is needed to support employees in all aspects of their development. I first was introduced to the BUS CONCEPT technology while serving as Senior Director of Training and Organizational Development.

Does this technology really work? Using this technology at Lance, Inc. we were able to reduce field sales turnover rates from 70% to 24% in less than one year…and we were able to reduce the toxic dismissals by 34%. Do the math. What does it cost to hire and train a new employee? There was no question that using these tools saved real dollars and made great sense. Using these results as a springboard, we investigated the tools available for other aspects of our employee development. Once our managers were introduced to the tools, they were sold. The goal was NOT to change them…but to show them the workable path to becoming BETTER at BEING THEMSELVES.

With the combination of practical experience and understanding of the technology, I look forward to assisting you and your work teams discover how to build on performance strengths and starve performance blockers for your organization’s improved performance.
