We BELIEVE:

The Love to Work Manifesto 

The Love to Work Life System

  • Clarify The Vision: We start by clarifying the vision of where the business is headed and how to take things to the next level from where the business currently is.
  • Create a Healthy Culture:  Creating a healthy culture doesn’t happen by accident. You need to be intentional in creating it.  We train our managers and leaders with the skills necessary to create a healthy culture in the business.
  • Executing on the Strategic Plan: The statistics on businesses being able to execute their plans are really bad. Only about 15% of annual strategic plans are actually executed. We use a numbers-based open approach that allows everyone in the business to see what is most important each quarter and how their role plays a part in the achievement of the overall goals.
  • Getting Things Done:   Winning is fun (and also imperative for the future of the business) and it doesn’t happen without getting things done. We help individuals to be more productive and make changes to the overall business to create better systems and processes.
  • Growing the People and the Business: There is a famous saying: “What happens if we invest in our employees and they leave?” and the retort is “What if we don’t and they stay.” We work at creating a great environment and growing the people within each business which helps the business grow as well and become a place that others want to work.
