I used to wear a lot of hats, but I’ve scaled back so that I can focus more intently on what I’m working on. I’m a unit-based team labor sponsor. One of our challenges is being able to meet so we do many things around communication so people know what’s going on. We distribute meeting minutes and sign an attestation that we’ve read the minutes and we use a visual board that shows our goals and where we are on reaching those goals. We also use data so that we are empowered to make change and we can see the impact. It’s a small piece but it impacts the big picture.
