January Webinar

Date: January 14
Time: 3pm Eastern
Cost: Free for Members       $99 for Non-members
Presenter: Karin Lindner

Topic: Mind over Manufacturing Matter: The Power of Intention and Expectations

Description:
Have you ever noticed that many people in our work environments want something for nothing? Well, wouldn't you if it worked?

On the other hand, there are people who have gotten into the habit of going the extra mile. They believe in doing more than they get paid for.

These people may be few and far between but they are definitely there. Now here is where things go terribly wrong. Ninety percent of the time individuals in either of these categories get treated the very same way. Their workplace behaviors are readily ignored due to busyness, which causes "attention deficit". It is more important to check our messages every 2 minutes than to look at employees' faces to really see what is going on. In other words, mediocrity and extraordinary effort co-exist but fail to get noticed. If you want to start the New Year with renewed energy and a new perspective, you have to take part in this webinar.

There she discovered her passion for working with people from the production floor to the executive suite. Karin enjoys exploring the road less travelled and specializes in employee engagement and motivation. In late 2006, she opted to tap into her creativity and resourcefulness by starting her own business. In 2010, she posed this question on LinkedIn: "How can we make manufacturing sexy?" After over 450 people who have a vested interest in this vital industry responded, Karin knew she had to share her unconventional insights and observations in a book. As a trainer, facilitator, coach and inspirational speaker, Karin’s goal is to reach progressive people, particularly in the manufacturing sector, and to create awareness among the general public of the incredible opportunities that exist in this industry that is critical to the wealth and prosperity of North America. www.karicosolutions.com.
