Inside Quality Digest Live for May 18, 2018

Metrology, mindfulness, and manners

Published: Monday, May 21, 2018 - 12:00

During the May 18, 2018, episode of QDL, we had a terrific conversation with Gary Confalone of the Coordinate Metrology Society, and also considered the importance of mindfulness and good manners in life and work. Let’s take a look:

CMS Corner interview with Gary Confalone

Confalone is the CEO and president of ECM Global Measurement Solutions as well as the chairperson of the Coordinate Metrology Society. In this, our monthly CMS Corner segment, we chatted about World Metrology Day, the importance of training, and what he’s learned in his year of chairing the society.

“How Companies Can Instill Mindfulness” and “Focusing on What Matters”

These two articles both discuss the importance of staying mindful in the workplace, and what that means to effectiveness as well as a focus on continuous improvement initiatives.

Off-script: Manners matter

In this extended and freewheelingly unscripted segment, Dirk and I explored the decline of common courtesy online and what we can do to bring it back in an age of expanding remote workplaces.
