Can Nursing Homes Be Less Chaotic?

Tzvi Schwartz, certified EOS Implementer, explains that if a leader must motivate employees it means that they don’t have a clear vision, their employees don’t share their core values, or their employees aren’t in the right seat. The concept of a vision refers to who a company is and where exactly it is going every day. This doesn’t have to be a grand, altruistic plan. In fact, it will be obvious if a company’s vision is contrived or insincere and they will inevitably attract employees who...
