Becoming a Great Lean Leader
A Gallup Study found that 50% of people who leave their jobs do so to get away from bad leaders. 70% of employees are not engaged at work. When they studied managers, they found that 51% are not engaged and 14% are actively disengaged! But what can we do about it? For improvement initiatives to be sustained, we will need a different leadership system, a different management system. If you don’t, it’s going to fall apart. If you manage the same way, with the same meetings, same metrics; you will get the same behaviors, beliefs, and the same results. So, unless we change the way we manage, continuous improvement initiatives will fail. If you want to succeed and sustain continuous improvement initiatives, then you need to manage differently. But how does one become a great Lean Leader? During this session, I will define Lean (Servant) Leadership and review Dr. Jeffrey Liker's Leadership Development Model.
