Shoffner Kalthoff Mechanical, Electrical Services and Shoffner Mechanical Services recently hosted a Leadership day for our field supervisory team. At this meeting, we brought in Steve Thomas to speak to our team. Steve was introduced to us through our attendance at several recent Unified Group meetings and his talk was truly enjoyed by all.
Steve spoke about leadership, leadership characteristics and the keys to being a successful leader. In his talk Steve made an interesting juxtaposition between leaderships traits in the “real” world and our world of mechanical contracting. He was able to open our eyes into the fact that as leaders we all have to embrace the personalities of those we lead. By discussing generational traits as well as personality traits and citing specific examples, Steve was able to illustrate his points and more importantly, he was able to get his message across to everyone.
We have our Leadership meetings on a quarterly basis, and we will certainly invite Steve to share more of his insights and knowledge with our team.
The Unified Group provides a forum not just for sharing but for celebrating our interest and achievements in this challenging industry.
"The Unified Group is unique to any other membership we belong to in the way that we are able to openly share the "nuts and bolts" of the challenges we face on a daily basis with other members who are in the same business, but are not our direct competitiors. There is a good chance that another member of the group has faced the same issues we are working through and can offer advice and/or a solution that has worked for them."
"We feel very fortunate to be part of The Unified Group. A group of like-minded mechanical contractors that realize as we do, you are only as good as the service you provide. With literally thousands of years of combined experience within The Unified Group we have been able to benefit both in sharing best practices and also the relationships that have been formed and continue to be formed as we work together."
