Lakeside Manufacturing on an annual basis exceeds national and regional manufacturing norms in terms of engagement and turnover. (Based on MRA engagement and satisfaction survey conducted company wide) With a turnover rate at 5% or less, we will discuss the leadership models that we utilize as well as follower models. Leading our people is about knowing who they are and what levels of commitment we are receiving from them.
We will discuss how we learn this information and what to do with it. Finally we will discuss how generational challenges are changing everything we used to think we knew about leadership.
