How I transformed three companies into cultures that are Serious Fun, and still got all the results we hoped for!
“No one wants to work, but we all have to, so why not make it FUN!”. This is a philosophy that was sparked by words from Mike’s father over 20 years ago and took him down the road to make the culture of Argus the focus and make the financial statements the results of their efforts. Intentional culture and LEAN manufacturing have blurred the lines at Argus of what it means to be efficient and results driven. Mike’s talk will show you how leadership starts and ends with culture. The Argus Tribal Culture is something you want to learn about, but beware, this is not a formula, but an example of how to build your own tribe from the ground up!
