Total Quality Commitment (TQC) … This is a 2 to 3-year cultural intervention requiring sponsorship by the CEO. Its premise:

That management does not have all the answers.

That all people have ideas about how their work can be done more effectively.

That people closest to the problems often have the best solutions.

That this almost unlimited source of knowledge and creativity can be tapped through employee engagement.

The outcome: A cohesive, results-driven team that focuses on superb customer service and increased productivity. “See the description of Larry’s new book on this website. The book Engage, Commit, Grow! is a guide for management on how to create and sustain a culture of high performance.”
