all about you

What you achieve

Sure you get lower costs. You also get sustainability. So what is sustainability? Your people are doing things. They are creating and pushing ideas to you. More ideas = lower costs. They are not waiting for you to tell them what to do. Opportunities are being acted upon. They are not missed. Employees are using metrics to analyze their business. Not because they have to. Because they want to. They enjoy getting things done and want to do more.

Finally, a natural, sustainable way to achieve lower costs, better safety, and ideas.

When your employees get things done it feels good. They want more. All this results in lower costs, better safety, more ideas, and profit.

What We Do

At Renshi we understand every company is unique, has hidden ideas ready to release and wants to do a good job.

We release ideas and achieve goals. We do this by pulling those ideas from your employees rather than pushing ours. We track your teams’ progression towards goals and provide positive recognition.

We do this by inserting full-time Performance Management Coaches (PMC’s), into your operation.

When the ideas start flowing – great things happen.

Costs reduce and employee involvement increases. It becomes easier to attract and keep those great employees.

What Renshi Really Does – Week 3 – Coaching – FEAR

What Renshi Really Does – Week 3 – Coaching – FEAR

 Phil Uglow takes you through Week 3 of a performance improvement project. He discusses the fear of coaching. From the Coachee and Coaches perspectives.


1. Coaching is scary for the Coachee because of lack of trust.
2. Trust is demonstrated, repeated, performance over time. Doing what you say you are going to do.
3. Coaching is scary for the coach because every coachee is different. There are an infinite number of ways the coachee can take to arrive at a decision. This defies process driven coaching programs which don’t work. They are not sustainable.

What Renshi Really Does – Week 3 – Coaching

Phil Uglow takes you through Week 3 of a performance improvement project. He discusses coaching.


1. Be wary of models. Take what makes sense from a model and use it as a tool.
2. Use a coaching FAQ to cover points.
3. Use GROW coaching framework.
4. Track actions on an action item list (AIL)

What Renshi Really Does – Week 1

What Renshi Really Does – Week 1

Phil Uglow takes you through Day 1 of a performance improvement project. He discusses the first meeting with a Tool Pusher and their crew.


1. Listen.
2. Ask questions, answer questions. Explain why you are there.
3. Handle resentment by understanding what the person is upset about. Use “Open Questions“.
4. Renshi coaches are not content specialists, so we don’t tell people how to do their job. We are specialists at finding out and removing issues that are preventing clients from doing their jobs.
5. Performance projects costs around $250,000 and return over $1 million in annual savings.
6. Use Pareto Charts and grid analysis to determine opportunities. Create a mindmap to determine interrelationships.
7. Present a report to senior leaders of only 1 page. Any more is unfocused.
8. Leave and allow the clients to “play the game“. Over coaching is the biggest error a coach can make.
