Had an amazing time. I truly appreciate the opportunity to travel the country seeing our other divisions operations/facilities and meeting fellow employee owners.
The training topics all revolve around leadership. Our instructors are professionals with extensive experience. Our first instructor was Jeff Witmer on encouraging quality control and managing productivity. On the 2nd day, we met with Mike Greene – topics discussed were encouraging accountability and ownership.
We always have a team-building event but, this quarter was more about experiences shared together through an airboat ride. We saw baby alligators with adult momma watching and protecting their young. Got to hold an 8yr old alligator. Seen tons of birds and turtles. It was my and a few of us first airboat ride.
Ryan Nash was an excellent host to the PAVE cohort. He treated us to a nice dinner downtown in the Villages. He spoke during one of our classes giving us his history in the trade.
Our last day was spent with Steve McClatchy on leading relationships.
