Establishing a Culture that Promotes Super-Performance


Many times improvements fall flat because the work culture doesn’t support a super-performance way of thinking and doing. What about your facility — does your culture support super-performance? Learn how to build a culture that correlates to the level of performance you want your facility to achieve!

Mike Kelley will be presenting “Establishing a Culture that Promotes Super-Performance” in his keynote session at the 2009 TapRooT® Summit.

Mike has worked in the oil and gas industry for over 30 years, including work in the United States, India, Egypt, Italy, Tunisia, Brunei, Angola, Mexico, Venezuela, Colombia, Trinidad, and Brazil. In his various roles, he was responsible for company-wide performance improvement, strategic planning, budgeting, projects, and daily operating expenses. He has participated in all aspects of initiating, integrating, and transforming company operations and culture in a highly fragmented, dynamic industry. Most recently, as VP of Operations for TODCO, (The Offshore Drilling Company) he was responsible for safe drilling operations in the United States Gulf of Mexico and inland waters, Mexico, Trinidad, Venezuela, Colombia, Brazil, and Angola. He has experienced super-performance firsthand, having participated in the achievement of second-order performance improvements in health, safety, and environment, operating effectiveness, and joy in work.

His passion is summed up in a leadership style that intentionally confronts and challenges self-imposed, self-limiting paradigms to break free of previously perceived boundaries and beliefs for performance excellence. Mike sees no distinction between professional and personal growth and helps create a working environment where employees can embrace and prosper by the positive power of change and engagement. By creating this type of environment, the total engagement of the workforce and the pure joy of working is uncovered and nurtured, and super performance results.
