Sustainable Success: How To Get The Best Out Of Your Team

Leadership means so much more than just running a shop. As business owners we should look to build communities, and although we may compete with one another, we also benefit by forming a collaborative front on outreach, innovation, and diversity. Leaders lead by bringing people together, regardless of background or difference of opinions, and motivating them to succeed.

  1. Explain the power of partnership, and how old adversarial relationships (women vs men, Millennial vs. Gen-X/Boomers) are counterproductive.
  2. Understand what to do when trying to expand opportunities for diversifying your team in manufacturing.
  3. Identify ways to encourage employee engagement

About Aneesa Muthana

President and Owner of Pioneer Service since 1993, Aneesa learned centerless grinding as a youth in her parents’ shop. She credits her company’s steady growth to exceptional workmanship and her team’s ability to adapt to new trends and technology. Aneesa believes the future of manufacturing hinges on outreach to tomorrow’s professionals while dissolving the old adversarial mindsets of “women versus men” and “millennials versus boomers.” The mother of two sons and three grandchildren, Aneesa draws inspiration from her own mother, who never backed down from adversity or failed to put her loved ones first.
