As businesses grow, they become more complex. This taken-for-granted trend, unfortunately, can often be the death knell of an operation. The employee experience and workflow become convoluted. Customers cannot navigate the services and products, and the company becomes unable to track the customer experience. Leadership, unable to read the core aspects of their business becomes isolated and unaware. Functions silo, missions drift, values become unclear and the company culture unravels.

This trend is what Gary Michel call’s “complifying”—and it isn’t an inevitability. As a leader in innovation, transformation and Lean business, Gary uses colorful stories and examples to demonstrate how to look beyond complifications that hurt profitability, hinder growth, and threaten organizations. These stories, drawn from his leadership at Club Car, Ingersoll Rand, Honeywell and JELD-WEN demonstrate how his leadership brought these already preeminent businesses to new heights through the process of “decomplifying” and embracing simplicity. He will guide you through the journey to decomplify leadership, employee and customer experiences, and to engage with a company’s culture, values and investors to unlock vast new possibilities.

Gary’s provocative axiom about business is that it must be reliably boring and relentlessly repeatable. He’ll explain why boring is a good thing—that it means the operation does what it is supposed to and that you can do exciting things by ensuring that you are boring enough to accomplish them. The relentlessly repeatable clause doesn’t mean being stuck in a cycle, but rather finding what works and then ensuring it can be done again—reliably. These are the paths to innovation, refinement, and results. Boredom can be disruptive, and repetition can be groundbreaking innovation.

Gary has spent considerable time independently measuring and processing employee engagement. He will engage with the work he has done in this area and discuss how to successfully keep employees engaged and how decomplification aids in the process. He will share how you can utilize his fresh eyes, clear voices and rally cry concepts to actively engage (and re-engage) associates throughout the organization and their tenures for innovation, transformation and performance.
