As AM Technical Solutions continues to expand their solutions-based specialty construction model, one thing has remained a constant: a solid company culture. The basic tenets of this culture are a commitment to the success of its employees, and to the communities where AMTS does business. Both of which they believe has a positive impact on client project success.
As is the case with most company missions, the true impact is felt through hundreds of little details every day.
At a recent executive-level management meeting, AMTS invited highly sought-after and well-respected leadership and growth expert Kirk Dando to take part in its strategic discussions. Mr. Dando, who has worked with more than 5,000 executives – including eight Ernst & Young Entrepreneurs of the Year and several “Best CEO” winners – made some insightful observations with regards to meeting conduct and executive interactions.
“I have been to thousands of executive level meetings, and it was so refreshing to be around a team that showed no signs of politics or bureaucracy,” says Mr. Dando.
“They actually opened the meeting with a prayer, and I saw engagement from the entire team. I witnessed mutual respect, but certainly no tiptoeing or signs of overt weakness of any individuals. I left feeling inspired. It was a top 5% meeting that I’ve ever been to from a value and productivity standpoint,” continues Dando.
“Best of all, I really heard a group of leaders who understand the importance of listening to clients. It was like detox to be around a company who truly lives what they say.”
“It really is a positive environment. Rather than beating each other up with numbers – because we know the numbers – we use the valuable time in our quarterly executive manager meetings working together to stay focused on our mission of always doing the right thing for our clients, our employees, our corporation and the communities where we do business,” says Kelly McAndrew, CEO of AM Technical Solutions.
“And while we certainly push one another and challenge ourselves each quarter in our commitment to being the best at what we do, we remind ourselves it’s our cultural foundation that is paramount to AMTS winning, and winning the right way”.
“A strong leader like Kirk brings us a valuable outside perspective. He’s worked with and led numerous successful companies, and we know he has a no-nonsense style. We trust that when he says we’re doing some things really well, that has an impact,” finishes McAndrew.
