Zingerman’s is back by popular demand!
Ever since it opened doors in 1982 as a small corner Delicatessen in Ann Arbor, MI, Zingerman’s has been recognized not just for its excellent products and customer service but also for its unique approach to business. Fast forward two decades and you’ll find Inc. Magazine calling Zingerman’s “the coolest small company in America”, touting that Zingerman’s “grand plan” for the future of their business was “far better than anything a management-consulting firm could have devised for them.”
If you asked folks at Zingerman’s, from the founding partners to the front-line, they would tell you that it all comes down to Visioning. Much like their unique definition of success, Zingerman’s has a unique take on Visioning. They teach their “recipe” for Visioning to everyone in the organization and use it at every scale – for really small ideas like moving the office copy machine to really large ones like where the Zingerman’s Community of Businesses will be in the year 2020.
Join us for this compelling keynote and interactive workshop. Learn all about why Visioning is so powerful. Leave with a “recipe”, tools and a ton of inspiration to get going on a vision – for your self, your business or your entire community!
Inc. Magazine called our featured book one of the Best Books for Business Owners. It is the first in a series of books by Zingerman’s co-founding partner Ari Weinzweig. In this book, Ari examines the 12 laws he and his partners have used as the basic building blocks of the culture and structure we know now as Zingerman’s. These approaches are applicable whether you’re running a law office, a library, a restaurant, a record label, a software firm, or an organic farm. They are the behind-the-scenes “secret” stuff that goes into making a very special, sustainable business of any kind.
