When things go south the impulse to crawl under my bed is almost overwhelming, especially after the adversity I have faced building our new facilities. Last week our facility manager quit for personal reasons. For almost a year I had worked closely with him to build procedures and train staff at our meat processing facilities near Calgary. Since November he had been encouraging me to move home to TK Ranch because everything was under control and in good hands. Just when I started to pack the bottom fell out of my plans, or so it seemed. I felt like I was free-falling from an aircraft but checked my behaviour when I noticed how devastated my staff were. He had hired, trained and worked with them daily to manage all aspects of our facility and was leaving in five days. They looked like the crew of a sinking ship. I immediately started the process of team building to reassure them that everything was going to be okay. A major part of this process was listening to their concerns and asking them for input and this changed everything. As a team we were able to see the big picture of what needed to be done to transition successfully. This process also allowed us to identify individuals from within our team that had the management skills to take over much of the workload. Instead of rushing out to hire a new manager I promoted from within and built team spirit. By acknowledging my staff and incorporating their feedback they have taken personal ownership in the success of our facility and moral has never been higher. I might be going home after-all.
