Description:
Are your employees COMMITTED and ENGAGED, or ‘just doing the job’?

Become a Positive Leader

Employee disengagement and lack of loyalty is costly. Disengaged workers have higher absenteeism, more errors, and more accidents. Lack of loyalty leads to higher stress, lowered productivity, and high rates of voluntary turnover.

Drawing on the emerging science of Positive Organizational Behavior (POB), this executive education program provides leaders with unparalleled opportunities for personal growth and transformation.

You don’t have to run like Forest Gump to participate in the 2016 Colorado Manufacturing Corporate Cup. The event will take place Sunday, May 15, in downtown Denver as part of the Colfax Marathon. Last year, 20 manufacturing teams competed for the Golden Gear Trophy, which went to SparkFun for the fastest 26.2 miles with its five-member team.

The top three teams in the division get to select a charity partner to receive proceeds from the marathon and all participants receive great tech shirts, awesome finisher medals and an invitation to the post-run afterparty in City Park, complete with barbecue and beer – a fantastic way to celebrate after completing your 6.4, 3.7, 6.0, 4.0 or 6.1 mile leg.

So, gather four of your co-workers (and up to two immediate family members), register your team and join the fun on May 15! Go to www.runcolfax.org/race/corporate-cup-relay for more information.

The 8th grade students have engaged in problem based learning for the majority of their educational experience. Before they move on to high school, these students will identify a problem of their choosing that could be solved with engineering solutions. They will design how they will research existing solutions and attempted solutions, and then their own ideas to address the problem.
