The Imperfect Leaders:
At Lift Truck Center, we embrace the idea that leadership is not about perfection but about continuous growth. Our leadership team acknowledges their imperfections but remains dedicated to improving themselves and serving our team and customers better. We believe that when leadership improves, the entire team thrives.

Monthly Leadership Development Meetings:
To nurture effective leadership, we host monthly leadership development meetings. These gatherings are dedicated to learning and growth, where we delve into topics that enhance our leadership skills and contribute to a healthy organizational culture. It’s our way of sharpening the axe and investing in our team’s success.

The Maxwell Daily Reader:
A cornerstone of our leadership development efforts is the Maxwell Daily Reader: 365 Days of Insight to Develop the Leader Within You and Influence Those Around You. This resource serves as a daily dose of inspiration and guidance, empowering our team members to become better leaders and make a positive impact in our organization.

A Kaizen Spirit of Continuous Improvement:
At the heart of Lift Truck Center beats a Kaizen Spirit of Continuous Improvement. We believe in the value of people and are committed to investing in their professional and personal development. Guided by “The Serving Leader” model, we strive to leverage our strengths to serve the needs of our customers and each other.

Our Purpose and Core Values:
Lift Truck Center’s purpose is clear: to provide businesses with reliable equipment solutions and services while minimizing environmental impact. Our Behavioral Core Values – Integrity, Performance, Respect, Accountability, Quality, Compliance, Appreciation, Kaizen, and Trust – are not just words but principles that guide our actions and decisions every day.

As we celebrate National Leadership Day, we invite you to join us in recognizing the power of leadership to transform organizations and uplift communities. Together, let’s continue to learn, grow, and lead with purpose. At Lift Truck Center, leadership isn’t just a role; it’s a commitment to excellence, service, and continuous improvement.
