TECHNICAL ORGANIZATIONS

Czufin has extensive experience coaching and developing technical organizations that ultimately produce and implement high quality, timely and cost-effective solutions that directly correlate to operational performance improvement.  As the senior technical leader at a nuclear facility, Czufin was instrumental in taking a longstanding low performing plant with a weak technical organization, to a sustained, top operational performer with a very strong technical organization, It also included multiple world records of operational performance. He strengthens technical organizations by creating an environment where alignment on direction, standards, expectations, capabilities and accountability is clear and demonstrated. He sets the standard for the leadership team to be highly engaged, aligned and have ownership for the effectiveness of the technical organization. Quality, timely and cost-effective solutions are created and implemented in a culture where challenge is healthy, welcome and encouraged every day.

WORKFORCE PERFORMING WITH PRECISION & HIGH QUALITY

Czufin has worked with thousands of workers across seventeen different nuclear facilities around the world.  These workers usually have extensive training, procedure requirements and expectations, as well as supervisory observations designed to ensure work is performed with precision and high quality. Even with these controls, errors continue to occur resulting in personnel injury, operational challenges, asset damage and impact to the corporation bottom line. Based on years of experience (both favorable and unfavorable) with worker errors, Czufin uses a systematic, yet simple approach designed for workers and leaders to better understand hazards, potential risks and how (and why) following the procedure requirements and expectations can significantly improve safety, reduce errors and potentially impactful consequences.


No matter if you are in the nuclear power industry or not, if you have had quality challenges with workers and would like to learn more about how we can leverage and share our experiences with precision and high-quality work to train, coach, mentor or provide consultation for performing work for individuals, leaders, teams or organizations, press “CONTACT US” below.

RISK MANAGEMENT AND DECISION-MAKING

Almost every day during his nuclear power career, Czufin worked to identify and understand hazards and the potential risks they could pose to individuals, plant operations, assets, the corporation and beyond. Based on many years of hazard recognition and risk management experience (both favorable and unfavorable), Czufin developed and uses a series of simple, yet systematic, graded-approach tools to understand, effectively manage (or eliminate) and communicate risk. Once the risk is understood, effectively managed (or eliminated) and communicated, reasonable, risk-based decision-making can occur. Czufin has shared his experiences in effective risk management and decision-making with hundreds of technical leaders through coaching, mentoring and training. He has developed assessment templates and formal training materials to help identify weaknesses and improve performance in risk-management and decision-making.


No matter if you are in the nuclear power industry or not, if you have had challenges with understanding and effectively managing risk to allow sound decision-making and would like to learn more about how we can leverage and share our experiences in effective risk management and decision-making to train, coach, mentor, assess or provide consultation for individuals, leaders, teams or organizations, press “CONTACT US” below.

A HEALTHY, CHALLENGING WORK ENVIRONMENT

Czufin has worked at several nuclear facilities where the technical workers, leaders and the their technical position was not respected or given proper consideration. This created an environment where important technical issues were not resolved, workers and even leaders were fearful of challenging others. Czufin changed these environments by setting clear expectations that the technical positions would be based on thorough, factual, non-emotional positions with risk-impact options. With this, he has been able to stand up to other leaders hundreds of times to ensure the technical positions got the proper consideration in the decision-making process. Czufin has trained over 500 senior nuclear leaders in and outside the US by sharing actual experiences to highlight the importance of respecting the technical position and creating an environment where people are comfortable raising concerns.



No matter if you are in the nuclear power industry or not, if you would like to learn more about how we can leverage and share our experiences to train, coach, mentor or provide consultation for respecting the technical position and creating an environment where people are comfortable raising concerns for individuals, leaders, teams or organizations, press the “CONTACT US” below.
