Three Important Things to Focus on
Quality is a priority in the organization, and standards are upheld at all levels.
Individuals take responsibility for their actions and deliver the highest quality standards.
Teams feel comfortable with questioning, confronting and being vigilant about what’s right.
Employees want to know that everyone on their team is pitching in. Think of your team as a rowboat. If you have three team members rowing as hard as they can and one team member just sitting there doing nothing, it makes rowing for the entire group a little bit harder.”
