Is your stone shop a means or the end?

Is your stone shop a means or the end?

November 26, 2020

What role does your stone shop play in your life?  Does it serve you or is it the other way around?  Is it a  means to an end or is it the end in and of itself? 

 

It’s a tough question for many, but one we must ask if we want to get all we can out of this life😊

Interview with Michael Bungay Stanier

Interview with Michael Bungay Stanier

October 9, 2020

Season 3 launches with an incredible interview that I had with Michael Bungay Stainer.

Michael Bungay Stanier is at the forefront of making coaching an everyday leadership behavior.

He is the author of The Coaching Habit ... the best-selling coaching book of this century with over 700,000 copies sold and 1,000+ five-star reviews on Amazon. His new book, The Advice Trap, focuses on what it takes to stay curious a little bit longer and tame your Advice Monster.

In 2019, he was named the #1 thought leader in coaching, and was shortlisted for the coaching prize by Thinkers50, the “Oscars of management”. He was a Rhodes Scholar.

Michael is also the founder of Box of Crayons ... a learning and development company that helps organizations transform from advice-driven to curiosity-led.

He left Australia nearly 30 years ago to be a Rhodes Scholar at Oxford University ... where his only significant achievement was falling in love with a Canadian ... which is why he now lives in Toronto, having spent time in London and Boston.

Balancing out these moments of success, he was banned from his high school graduation for “the balloon incident,” was sued by one of his law school lecturers for defamation, and his first published piece of writing was a Harlequin romance short story called “The Male Delivery.”

Episode 100! Interview with EMyth Coach Steve Edkins

The 5 years I spent in the EMyth Mastery program with my coach Steve Edkins, altered the course of history for me.
Without it, I would still be at the mercy of my business with no life outside of it.
In this episode, I get to interview my old cold and he brilliantly demonstrates why coaching is essential to positive change in our business and personal lives!

For those who don't know, Steve Edkins has been an EMyth Coach since 1997. Prior to being a coach, he had many diverse professional experiences, including roles in advertising and marketing, operations, sales, and sales management. His passion is to help owners see things they may not have seen before so they can make changes that give them the energy and confidence to build the businesses of their dreams.

3 Challenges with Fixed Turn Around From Template to Install

3 Challenges with Fixed Turn Around From Template to Install

April 24, 2020

3 Challenges with Fixed Turn Around From Template to Install

When we commit to install dates, the clock starts ticking and when things go wrong, it can be a challenge!

And those challenges are real!

In this episode I discuss the top 3:
1. Passing on jobs
2. Delayed job scramble
3. Pressure on production when things go wrong.

I'd be remiss to not acknowledge these realities after advocating the value of a fixed turn around...so this is full disclosure:)

Enjoy!

The Rhythm of All Rhythms

The Rhythm of All Rhythms

The Rhythm of All Rhythms

Hold on fellow fabricator, in this episode, I make a bold statement. You should have a fixed, consistent, and repeatable turn around time from template install.

Yes, I said it.

In this episode of the Fab Lab, I explain detail the 4 benefits of creating such a "rhythm" in your production process.

1. Clarity
2. Known Install Dates
3. Minimize WIP (work in progress)
4. Acquire Job Info

You are going to be challenged by this one if you own or run a stone shop...Enjoy!

And happy fabricating!

Why Routines, Rhythms, and Patterns are Essential to Business Success

April 10, 2020

Why Routines, Rhythms, and Patterns are Essential to Business Success.

When leaders make the work in their companies predictable and "routine" the results can be astounding!

I begin to look at why this is so important and where to start in this episode of the Fab Lab.

I discuss:

1. Emotional Health for Employees and Customers
2. Optimal Efficiency for Operations and Profits
3. Turn Around from Template to Install

You need and like routine and so does your company!

Enjoy.
