Coaching Leadership for a Lean Culture Transformation – Wisconsin

$450.00 – $600.00

Special full-day workshop

Registration 8:30 a.m.

Most companies embarking on a lean journey soon become frustrated with kaizen events and isolated improvement projects that yield great short-term results but have no sustainability. They are searching for something more: the culture of continuous improvement with its philosophy, processes and people aligned to cultivate problem solving.


In this program you will address the top barriers to your lean transformation and what to do about them. These barriers include

  • Overemphasis of “lean tools” and not developing and engaging the people
  • Lean being isolated to operations and not connecting functions across the organization
  • Taking strategic, aligned and clear action steps throughout the organization


  • Learn actions to immediately improve your profits and cash flow and get the business results your leaders are requiring
  • Establish systems to get your people the development and growth they are looking for
  • Understand and implement processes and systems to sustain your improvement activity
  • Understand how to attract, select, develop and engage competent, able and committed team members and leaders
