I’ve had the benefit of learning, practicing, and teaching continuous improvement for the better part of almost twenty years. I have seen, first-hand, the transformational power of how continuous improvement can radically change people’s lives at work in a way that benefits everyone: the customer, the employee, and the organization. I am fortunate to have found a career where I can help people and teams be the best versions of themselves.

I’ve been fortunate to speak with and learn from some incredible leaders. On my podcast, we focus on leaders who have been successful in Lean or Continuous Improvement. Recently I was asked, “What do you believe are the common elements of the continuous improvement culture that leaders provide?” These leaders all promote rapid action, but that's not all; these leaders also think of their continuous improvement culture differently.

Leading an organization that is committed to lean principles requires hard work and focus. Success or failure in a lean transformation is largely dependent upon the leaders who are involved. This goes deeper than hyperbole like “What gets measured, gets managed;” Lean is about purpose, thinking, and behaviors.
