Workshop Running Between 1:00 - 1:45pm


Shaping the Lean Mindset - leadership, employee engagement, team learning

With Lean and Change journeys, implementation is a challenge, sustaining change even more so.  Getting the culture and climate right is critical to sustaining improvements.  To do this we need to create a climate where an innovation culture can flourish.  This is a climate where team members all have a Lean Mindset in a Psychologically Safe environment.

This session will walk you through the 3 behaviour pillars of this culture, The Leader, The Individual, and the Team.  We will show you how it is measured, and how each impacts the other, all based on substantial research undertaken.  You will have an opportunity to assess your own Leadership Style, plan how you can become a more Transformational Leader, and know the key steps to create the climate for a Lean Mindset culture.
