Personal Leadership – Employee satisfaction and effectiveness represent the greatest
opportunity for success and/or failure in any organization. Satisfied employees will lead to
higher levels of employee engagement, reductions in unplanned attrition, which all leads to
improvement in bottom line performance both short-term and long. In order to create an
environment which nurtures high levels of employee satisfaction, each and every employee
must take ownership in working towards this objective. Following is a list of ideals which you
will be measured by:
 Professionalism – means behaving in a manner which is positive, respectful, and
intelligent. Professionals respond to circumstances in a controlled methodical
manner. Directed profanities, or elevated tempers are not acceptable as they do not
promote an environment we wish to maintain.
 Attendance and Punctuality are critical components of personal leadership. Failure to
maintain consistency in either of these measures will lead to dismissal.
 Engagement in staff meetings, or group forums which offer employees the
opportunity to make suggestions, observations, as well as suggestions. Special
attention must be considered to separate general complaining from observations
accompanied by thoughtful suggestions.
 Understand, promote both through actions and word the corporate goals and vision.
 Promote safety awareness, behaviour, and discipline within your environment.
Facility Management – Clean, Safe, and well functioning facilities contribute to overall
success with Employees, Customers, and Efficiencies. Every employee must take personal
responsibility for maintaining an environment which enable these objectives. A simple
personal measure is to leave anything and everything better and cleaner than you’ve found it.

Health and Safety Committee.

 Monitor for overruns, quality deviations. Report instances where projects don’t meet
target and any actions taken at the time of reporting.

Continuous Improvement – A key success factor is the ability to compete globally through
the implementation for progressive manufacturing systems. As times continue to change with
respect to technologies, cost of technologies, availability of skilled labour, and competition
