George Bernard Shaw once said, “The single biggest problem in communication is the illusion that it has taken place.” This misalignment not only harms relationships and derails progress on collaborations, but I would argue that it’s the root cause that undermines our business development goals as well.Communication is defined as the exchange of information, and an exchange includes both giving and receiving.

How two small, family-owned job shops overcome global and personal business trialsBY Josh Leath, product manager, welding, Yaskawa America Inc., Waukegan, Ill.Reprinted with permission: The Welding JournalIntrinsic to the American business landscape, small, family-owned fabrication shops are experiencing more challenges than ever. On a grand scale, turbulent global economies and ever-changing regulations are dictating the current state of the manufacturing sector, creating a greater demand for high-quality customized products to be made within the United States.
As an association, the Chemical Coaters International has always invested in educational opportunities for those in the industrial finishing industry. It is our belief that the more educational opportunities made available to students, employees and companies, the products being manufactured will benefit from a more efficient and higher quality production process.
