The Future Depends Upon the Youth

by khunter on Wednesday, September 24, 2014 2:32 AM
I’ll admit it, I am part of the “older” generation and I know this because the music is too loud and just the idea of staying up all night makes me want a nap. That being said, when I brag about my kids I am always surprised when someone challenges me with “You have teenagers and you LIKE your kids?” Youth, as seen from the other side of the generation gap, can look incomprehensible and the young recruits joining our organizations come complete with fully integrated personal electronic devices that connect them to the world in ways that seem like science fiction. ...

by khunter on Wednesday, May 07, 2014 6:02 AM
How has work been going for you lately? Busy? Frustrated because things are not moving along as quickly as you had hoped? Distracted by so many little things that the big things never get the time or attention needed? It is far too easy to get so focused on the task at hand we lose sight of the overall picture.

Resistance is Futile.

by khunter on Monday, February 17, 2014 8:54 AM
 

You may laugh but there is some truth to that statement.  However, while organizational change is inevitable, it doesn’t go over well to say this to your employees or to hear it from your boss.  Change happens and the default response is pushback.  It is as if we are hardwired for stability and when the circuitry is swapped out we struggle to learn the new operating system.  Upgrade be dammed, if the work-around fixed the problem then leave it alone.

by khunter on Monday, September 02, 2013 4:57 AM

“Success is not a result of spontaneous combustion, you have to light yourself on fire. – Fred Shero.” Dang, I wish I wrote that! It sums up exactly what I have been working on this week. Lighting yourself on fire is a pretty scary thing to do but, the Truth is, if you want to make a difference then that is exactly what needs to happen.

Why Knowing Better Doesn't Always Translate to Doing Better

by khunter on Tuesday, August 20, 2013 12:01 PM
Lean Transformations begin as an idea, an idea that by doing something different we can be something different.  In the security and comfort of our own thoughts, we can imagine how amazing it will be to work within a continuous improvement culture where our talents are recognized, supported, and our skills utilized.  What a great place to be!  No end-of-the month rushes, consistently making the numbers, everyone contributes, and life is good.  Sounds great, right?  So how do we get there?  And why is it so hard?

Real Magic

by khunter on Tuesday, June 18, 2013 7:26 AM
Magic. It is real.



“What?” you say, “Isn’t magic just an illusion?”



I’m not talking about the kind of magic in which you are persuaded to believe in something that is not there. Real magic happens when you bring something into the world that wasn’t there before. Let me explain.

Values, Vision, & Mission

by khunter on Thursday, April 25, 2013 1:58 PM
Setting direction for an organization, department, or group is vital to keeping everyone aligned. However, most companies unknowingly go about this process backwards.

How to Work Smarter, Not Harder

by khunter on Friday, February 22, 2013 12:37 PM
“Work smarter, not harder” is a cliché tossed around as if what to do is just plain obvious. The problem with clichés is that while, the end result is obvious, getting to that end is not. Seriously, if we knew how to work smarter, we would already be doing it. So where to do we start?
