This seminar is designed for individuals that are new to using the Baldrige Framework. The participant will receive a slow walk through the criteria, hands on experience of evaluating the criteria and questions, and answers as to how to use the criteria in their organizational and personal lives.
Regular Examiner Training
This training is designed as an introduction or refresher for participants in how to use the Baldrige criteria. There is a requirement to accomplish some light homework prior to class. Additionally, if your organization is writing an application or considering writing an application, you should send around 5 -7 people to this training; WE teach the test! This class is continually changing based upon the latest information and training from the national program. Topics include leadership, strategic planning, customer service, information management, workforce focus, operational activities, and how to measure results.
Leadership Development Seminar
This seminar is designed for anyone who is in a leadership position from CEO/Superintendent level to aspiring leaders who are not yet in those leadership positions. This class contains the latest leadership information, generational differences, personality differences, working with difficult people, and 19 topics that can elevate your knowledge of leadership. It is based upon over 4,000 leadership books, case studies, YouTube videos, and much, much more. Topics include how to build trust, building teams through strong relationships, and delegation/empowerment. Both Leadership Development seminars conducted in 2016 had 100% participant satisfaction.
Strategic Planning Seminar
This training is designed to stretch the organization and fully understand the reason to complete strategic planning. Some of the latest material regarding how to conduct strategic planning will be reviewed along with specific definitions of strategic planning. It is recommended that each organization send 5 to 7 people who will be at the same table for the duration of the training. This training is unambiguously intended to maximize continuous improvements of the organization and individuals. Topics include a review of the culture, what is strategy, the importance of a dynamic vision, discussion of what we do now (mission), and how to determine the appropriate goals for the organization overall and down to subordinate elements. This seminar is highly interactive with opportunities to work with your group and improve current strategic planning activities.
The Quality Texas Foundation conducts writing seminars designed to save the organization time and money. It is also designed to help train and teach participants to complete an application in the shortest amount of time. We currently have 100% satisfaction where we have done this. This writing seminar can be done as a part of a retreat to greatly improve the organization in three areas: customer engagement, employee engagement and financial improvement and management.
