Everyone should have a sensei (or teacher / coach) when it comes to developing a culture of continuous improvement. Some of us were mentored in kaizen by the best sensei in the world. Do you have a sensei?
We are constantly looking for better ways to develop our current and future leaders. I found the Effective Leadership Development program with OpX Solutions to not only be extremely effective, but it also aligned with our focus on having leaders become more strategic in their planning of their daily activities, as well as the associates that report to them. The class was very beneficial to shift the standard way of thinking for our leaders from Important/Urgent to Important/Non Urgent i.e. shift from firefighting to strategic planning.

I absolutely love this EPP class! Thank you so much for encouraging me to take it and thanks to OpX for being a company. I was almost thinking, how have I made it this far in my career without this class? Exactly what I needed to get organized and set goals.
