The Progressive Affiliated Lumbermen’s (PAL) 2014 Business Conference and Buyers Show was themed ‘Onward and Upward’. Randy Goruk was honored to deliver the keynote message – ‘Making Traditional Values Work in The New Reality’. The message was …. the economy has impacted us all. Slowly we have waited for things to get “back to normal”, but now we’ve realized that there is a “new normal”. He reminded the audience that their industry is a relationship business that requires an injection of innovation and adaptation to unstoppable change…and leadership needs to make it happen. We need to think of doing things better as we work on recruiting, hiring, servicing customers, developing people, planning and collaboration. His expertise with leadership training in challenging economic times blended well with today’s trends with traditional LBM values and the coming demographic tsunami.
He also delivered a 90 – minute leadership development presentation ‘Leadership Strategies That Will Fully Engage Your Team’. The main message was the way to improve your staff today is to focus on employee engagement. With reduced staff levels and the fast paced world we live in, one of the biggest challenges leaders are faced with today is effective communication. Many leaders underestimate the power of strategically engaging their teams to achieve optimal results. Teams that are fully engaged simply do more and deliver better results which leads to improved employee retention, improved productivity, less mistakes and lower costs. This hard-hitting leadership workshop provided immediate take-a-ways to get everyone going Onward & Upward!
To promote the event and Randy as this years speaker, PAL purchased a copy of Randy’s book ‘Sparks – A Business Fable’ for all of the meeting attendees. They also placed a copy of Randy’s Leadership Tip of the Week in their Newsletter for 10 – weeks leading up to the conference.[sd_testimonials] [sd_testimonial name=”Paul J.
