THIS SESSION IS LIMITED TO ONLY THOSE COMPANIES
WHO WANT TO DRASTICALLY IMPROVE THEIR BUSINESS
Ray Attiyah, local entrepreneur and author, gives us insight into how entrepreneurs need to work on our business and not in the business. His practical approach to improving and growing businesses liberates the entrepreneurs from getting mired in the day to day operational details and daily issues.
The Fearless Front Line is a call to action for these leaders: to set a standard of fearlessness where front line workers have an “I run this place!” mindset that reflects pride and ownership of their critical role. This, in turn, liberates leadership to focus on the big-picture, bold strategies to improve and grow the business. Featuring Ray Attiyah’s Run-Improve-Grow model, The Fearless Front Line provides readers with a proven system, processes and tools, including the RIG Roadmap, World Class Time Allocation standards, and What Went Well Daily Huddle scripts to create responsive, innovative, and nimble organizations and inspired, accountable, and confident teams. With The Fearless Front Line, leaders can benefit from a proven program to drive perpetual and transformational improvement and growth.
