How to Be a Better Manager

They say a good player is made by a good coach. The same is true of business: a good manager can build a better team. It can be daunting, but if you adopt a couple specific management techniques, the result will be better for you, your team and your company. When it comes to operational effectiveness, it is the daily habits that make the most long-lasting impacts. Here are a couple quick tips for managerial effectiveness:

Listen carefully—Pay attention every day to your employees’ lives. When you’re invested in their life, you become a trusted leader and you’re able to make better decisions. If you know that one of your employees is going through a divorce, perhaps ask another employee to help with their workload. This will minimize stress and your employee will recognize your thoughtfulness.

Be a mentor—Look for learning opportunities for employees. A mentorship can benefit you and your mentee. Make sure you verbalize that you’d like to have lunch with your employees or invite them to a business-related seminar. Is there an intern that joined the company? See if they’re interested in talking about their professional future.

Expect excellence—Keep the fine line between being a friend and a manager by expecting quality work. Set high but attainable standards that each employee can strive to achieve. Be authoritative in your expectations. But, always be available to help your employees learn how to achieve those expectations.

Welcome to Lithtex Printing!

The art of printing is not in the press. Or fancy die cuts, or bindery, either. Instead, it’s using printing to make business happen. At Lithtex, printing is about more than just ink and paper - it’s about creating business solutions, and getting results.

Lithtex Printing Solutions was founded in 1973 in Beaverton, Oregon by Les Davis. Originally established as a quick-print shop, we quickly became known as a leading local resource for the fast-turnaround printing needs of local businesses.

Over the years our reputation for top-notch work grew, so did the company. As other printers struggled to compete in a changing marketplace, We acquired more equipment, employees and clients, to become among the largest local printing companies.

Lithtex has always been committed to keeping up with the latest printing technology. As the local business climate changed in the late 1990’s, client budgets tightened, demand for return on investment rose, and technology quickly advanced. Foreseeing a change in the printing needs of businesses large and small, Lithtex evolved by adding digital equipment to its extensive offset printing capabilities to support the emerging need for short-run quality printing—thereby establishing itself as the business-solution driven printing company.

In 2001, we expanded operations and built a 50,000 square foot state-of-the-art printing facility. Today, that facility is Lithtex’s headquarters for developing business solutions for its clients.

In 2010 we were rewarded Hillsboro's "Business of the Year" by the Hillsboro Chamber of Commerce. a recognition that we are extremely proud of.

Today, Lithtex continues to be a recognized leader of solution-oriented printing.
