The TLMI Converter Meeting attracted record attendance, including a huge influx of first-time attendees.
The meeting began with a keynote from leadership author Chester Elton who focused his presentation on how apprecia- tion can transform companies and deeply affect it culture. Elton shared a quote from Bill Emerson, CEO, Quicken Loans, to illustrate the importance of establishing a corporate cul- ture.“If you don’t create a culture at your company, a culture will create itself, and it won’t be good. If it hasn’t been nur- tured, you can assume it’s the wrong culture.” Elton stated that “when you walk into a great culture, it smacks you in the face with its concreteness.” (Cont’d on Page 5)

A HEALTHY PLAN FOR BUILDING PROFITS
TLMI Converter ( Cont’d from Page 1)
And one of the ways in which to build a vibrant cul- ture is to show that the people in the company are valued. “When people feel valued, things happen,” Elton said. To illustrate this point, Elton shared results from sur- veys that indicate that it is statistically impossible to have an engaged employee at work if they do not feel valued. Elton shared case studies from corporations that had found ways to elevate and improve their cul- tures. At Avis, Elton interviewed a young manager named Carlos who started what he called Ten Pennies. The idea was simple: Every morning he put ten pen- nies in his right pocket and every time he have a posi- tive interaction with another employee and gave them praise, he moved one penny to the other pocket. In this way, Carlos could track that he had at least 10 pos- itive interactions with employees every single day. It also kept him away from his desk and out among the workforce.The Ten Penny philosophy worked so well that Avis used it as a national campaign. Elton said that 87 percent of global employees claim they are somewhat disengaged or actively dis- engaged. “Let’s face it,” he said, “in a world where being ‘fierce’ or ‘tough’ are often prized, kindness hardly seems in vogue. It’s a shame because kindness can be very good for your business, very good.” Listen To Your Business Elton said he can often tell if a business is healthy the moment he walks in the front door. “Listen to your business,” he said.“If it’s loud, it’s healthy. If you walk in and it’s quiet, they don’t trust the person you are with, which is usually the boss. If it gets louder when the boss comes in, that’s a healthy company.” Elton said the ratio between positive and negative interactions in the work place should be about 5 to 1. According to a Harvard Business Review study he ref- erenced, top performing teams gave each other 5.6 positive comments for each negative. He also stressed that the things that motivate employees are chang- ing. Millennials have very different standards for what makes a compelling workplace. For instance, Millennials believe teams accomplish more than in- dividuals, and they are much more motivated by the impact they make, the ability to learn and spending time with family than they are by money. “Every impression matters,” he concluded. “If you want to make your day a little better, go appreciate someone. Send people home happy.” Claudia St John, President of Affinity HR Group, broke the attendees into small groups where they could work on topics they themselves deemed im- portant to their companies.

Attendees were most concerned (in order) with ways to improve employee engagement; how to re- cruit sales talent; how to grow revenue; how to re- cruit strong people; how to pay and incentivize customer service reps; building and maintaining a strong corporate culture; how to build a compensa- tion plan for sales people; how to increase profits; and how to improve customer loyalty. The full comments from the participants will be made available soon by the TLMI. Making A Connection Sports Agent Molly Fletcher kicked off the second day of programming by speaking about the ways to connect in business. “Leaders lean into change,” Fletcher said. “Compla- cency is the enemy of success. The more we chal- lenge ourselves, the better we perform.” All business, Fletcher said, is based on relationship building.“We need to get into the heads and hearts of those we serve,” she said.“You must have the courage to ask tough questions to better serve customers.” Fletcher once asked a golf pro what separated good golfers from great golfers. The answer was that great players recover from adversity quicker than anyone else. Fletcher said she’s found the same thing in busi- ness. Everyone has tough days, difficult problems, but great leaders learn how to work through them and come out stronger on the other end. Becoming A Hero Motivational speaker Kevin Brown wrapped up the conference with a presentation on the Hero Effect. He stated that the typical definition of a hero — an ordinary person doing extraordinary things — is misplaced, chiefly because he does not believe in ‘ordinary’ people. Because he believes that every person should view themselves as extraordinary, he thinks the definition of hero should be changed to, “Heroes are extraordinary people who choose not to be ordinary.” He added a number of thoughts that he says moti- vates great companies and leaders. •What got you here won’t keep you here. • No one cares if you’ve been brilliant before, you have to be brilliant now. • What can I do to add value to the people I serve and serve with? • You can never do wrong doing the right thing. Don’t ask what’s in it for me. • You want to be THE choice, not A choice. • People are seeking validation.

Koenig & Bauer Flexotecnica To Host Flexo Curing Seminar Koenig & Bauer Flexotecnica and the Flexographic Technical Association will offer a new half-day semi- nar entitled “We Have The Cure,” scheduled for March 28 in the Dallas, Texas, headquarters of Koenig & Bauer Flexotecnica. The event is open to all industry printer/converters looking to optimize their process. “Our goal is to help printers and converters deter- mine which curing technology is best for them and their market,” said Jeff Dietz,Vice President at Koenig & Bauer Flexotecnica. “Both E-Beam and LED-UV are achieving great popularity. We’ve invited leading ex- perts to discuss the benefits and opportunities of each technique and how they relate to electron beam curing and LED-UV to the press, inks, and plates. We’ll have on hand an experienced brand owner to talk about trends in packaging and how it impacts the need for newer curing technology. The round table discussion will include two special guests: a narrow web printer and a flexible packag- ing printer who are both currently running E-Beam and LED-UV.” Covering Curing Topics to be covered over course of the seminar will include: • How to remove the need for drying time or pow- der with inks that cure instantly; • Expanding substrate offerings to include plastics and other materials that don’t absorb inks; • How to achieve quality, safety-conscious print re- sults with heat-sensitive substrates; • Why and how LED-UV lamps last significantly longer – (10x) than traditional UV lamps, saving time and money (LED-UV modules can provide 30,000+ hours of curing, when operated at the proper power capacity); • How to eliminate heat, ozone and mercury from the press room, making the process safer and improv- ing overall environmental impact; • How LED-UV curing eliminates the release of VOCs because UV inks are free of solvents and avoids the environmental issues caused by them; • How to bypass the energy costs and heat-related hazards of heatset drying; • Which value-added coatings can be used efficient- ly and effectively; • High-end printing effects, like drip-off (a.k.a. “strike through”) and how they can be achieved, and discussion of further developments in this arena that are broadening creative applications and what is pos- sible with printing.
