Leadership and Culture in the Workshop
Terry: We often talk about people entering this industry and never leaving. Tell us about your personal journey in garment decorating.
Aaron: We’ve been discussing a fast-changing decorating environment over the past couple of years. What industry changes are you seeing? (Customers asking for shorter runs, etc.)
Terry: I had that same old conversation yesterday with some screen printing production folks, “How do you find good employees?” I know you have some strong opinions on this.
Aaron: Management issues are a big part of our show. Talk to us about leadership on your own production floor.
Terry: Another hot topic is culture. How do you build a culture in your shop, and how do our listeners duplicate that in their own shops.
Aaron: You mentioned to us that you’ll be at ThreadX in San Diego in a few days. What are you hoping to learn and achieve there?
