We are all experiencing a significant adjustment in our lives and jobs that we probably never thought we would face. It is one thing to have a work from home policy that allows teams to have the flexibility, and it is entirely another to force employees to their homes and not let them within 6 feet+ of each other if at all.
The Growth Factory has been a great place for me to develop professionally. The classes have been great to see perspectives from members outside of my line of work. Even though there is a difference in the industry, we all face the same management issues. All of the different perspectives help. Tim’s 1:1 coaching has also been extremely helpful. Tim cares deeply about developing people and it shows. He is a great sounding board and mentor. I would recommend the Growth Factory to all new and established organization leaders.
The skills I have learned from both GEAR and Top GEAR have allowed me to build a stronger more cohesive team all while allowing me to grow tremendously as a manager. I can honestly say without Tim and The Growth Factory I would not have been able to have those fierce conversations with my employees, strive to hold my team and upper management accountable, create a team that works together & communicates well, dealt with company culture changes, set goals for myself and team…the list goes on and on. In 14 months I have been able to take away skills that take some people a lifetime to learn. Tim’s expertise and passion truly come out each and every meeting.
“I am a young leader who has achieved a very challenging and impactful role at my company. I have had to rapidly learn the needs of my team in order to be effective as a manager. Tim has been able to help me adjust my management style to accelerate our performance. Our business is currently growing at a very high-level Year over Year. Thank you for your coaching, experience and allowing me to learn and grow through your groups and 1:1 coaching.”
I am impressed by what The Growth Factory/GEAR Group has done for my two middle management employees thus far. Bottom line, both managers are much more engaged with their employees and immediate manager. Their focus, increased skill level, application techniques and results are becoming much more obvious to the Senior management here at Bluefin Seafoods.
