Personal Empowerment: Taking Initiative
November 21, 2013 / 8 a.m. – 12 p.m. / SLCC Miller Campus / Cost: $149.00

If people see empowerment as something that is given to them, they will miss out on opportunities to take responsibility for action, or to take initiative to solve problems, improve processes, and give your company a competitive edge.

This course seeks to change the mind-set that empowerment is something that is given. It helps employees see that they can and should look for improvement opportunities.

Objectives - Assist leaders to:
• Make their jobs more interesting, motivating, and rewarding
• Become more valuable to the organization
• Help their group or organization be more effective and successful
• Take responsibility for their own success in multiple aspects of work life


Quality 101
November 22, 2013 / 8 a.m. – 5 p.m. / SLCC Miller Campus / Cost: $199.00

This course will specifically teach participants that quality control in the workplace is everyone’s responsibility. The course is designed to meet organizational needs for establishing a foundation for quality knowledge and competence with their workforce and in their work place. The goal of this course is to assist business organizations in achieving product excellence.

Course objectives:
• Listing the benefits of quality to individuals, organizations, customers, suppliers, and society
• Describing the key events in the quality of evolution
• Identifying and describing the key components of total quality management (TQM) and providing an understanding how organizations approach TQM deployment
• Differentiating between the TQM philosophies of six quality experts and two quality approaches: Six Sigma and the Baldrige program
• Learning the role of process management in TQM and the interrelationship of processes and systems.
• Recognizing how basic quality tools can be used to help improve processes
• Defining different quality concepts related to quality evolution, TQM, process management, and the basic quality tools

Gary has also presented AmpleHarvest.org to USDA People's Garden Initiative Conference in Washington DC, hosted a webinar for 100,000 invited USDA employees on gardening and hunger, and has been interviewed numerous times by print and electronic media nationwide. AmpleHarvest.org works closely with First Lady Michelle Obama's Let's Move! initative to improve fresh food access at thousands of food pantries nationwide.

In addition to helping AmpleHarvest.org continue its expansion to food pantries and gardeners nationwide, Gary also does public speaking about hunger and the AmpleHarvest.org Campaign, individuals making a difference in their community as well as a variety of environmental topics.
