Tim Connor, President
Tim Connor has been involved in hospitals and healthcare related fields for over 40 years. After developing the curriculum and serving as Program Director in the Ocala school of Radiologic Technology, he left clinical practice to move into organizational development. In that capacity Tim developed the Management Development Program for Munroe Regional Medical Center, and then managed the Performance Improvement process at that hospital for 10 years. His efforts there were instrumental in producing over 200 PI teams which resulted in the hospital earning a Florida Excellence Award in Patient Satisfaction in 2000, tying for the best in Florida in staff retention, and moving into the Top 100 Hospitals in the United States in several categories. He led the team which produced the first organization-wide implementation of Goldratt’s Constraints Management system ever undertaken by a hospital in the United States.
In 2002 Tim, with his wife Barbara, started Rodeo! Performance Group with the goal of making serious business methods both effective and fun. To date the company has worked with dozens of clients providing performance improvement and six sigma training, team development and facilitation, strategic planning with supporting implementation, leadership education and skills development, and Malcolm Baldrige Quality System implementation.
Tim has been certified as a Master Facilitator and a Master Instructor in Team Building, Process Management, Statistical Process Control (Six Sigma methods), and Managing Quality Improvement. He has been a Florida Sterling Examiner (Malcolm Baldrige), and a Certified Facilitator in Franklin Covey’s 7 Habits®, 4 Roles of Leadership®, and What Matters Most®. He is also a ruling elder at Grace Presbyterian Church (PCA) and has written over a dozen courses on the practical application of Biblical principles in daily life.
