      On Fridays I will post a Lean related Quote. Throughout our lifetimes many people touch our lives and leave us with words of wisdom. These can both be a source of new learning and also a point to pause and reflect upon lessons we have learned. Within Lean active learning is an important aspect on this journey because without learning we can not improve.

            One thing which is common to most successful business organizations is that they have a troop of engaged employees. An engaged workforce is connected emotionally to the organization. As a result, it exhibits higher productivity, enhances profitability and leaves no stone unturned to support the company’s growth. It’s no wonder that today companies across the globe have realized the importance of an engaged workforce and started making plans to cultivate one for them. If you also aspire to...

              One important aspect in lean manufacturing is “Respect for People,” or more correctly, “Respect for Humanity.” But while it is mentioned frequently in presentations and books on lean manufacturing, what it actually means is often glossed over. And it is not an easy topic to write about. There is no “5 Steps to Respect for ... Read more

                People expect things to work, every day, before all else. Bosses, however, expect their staff to follow orders, before all else. Whatever your job is, don’t get fooled in thinking that success is defined by your boss’ approval. Bosses change, […]

                  Strategy entails answering two questions: 1) Where are we going?, and 2) How are we going to get there?

                  Last time I talked about how we might create a pull for achievement, and thereby transcend the limitations of the carrot & stick.

                  Today I’d like to talk about how we stay the course. Achievement is hard, achievement hurts. How do we sustain our drive in the face of hurtles, hassles and hammerheads?

                  The ancients defined Four Cardinal Virtues: Prudence, Temperance, Justice and Courage.

                  cowardly_lion.jpg

                  Courage is the most admired, and rightly so. (Marcus Aurelius called in Fortitude). Breakthrough – transcendent, enduring achievement – requires all the Cardinal Virtues, and courage most of all. In fact, Courage makes the other virtues possible.

                  So what is Courage? It is not fearlessness. Courage is the capacity to overcome fear.

                  Courage, like True North, entails head and heart. [Getting the Right Things Done]

                  Courage without the head is simply foolhardiness. Courage means you understand the risks, and do it anyway.

                  Is courage a virtue under any circumstance? I'd say not. Is a courageous terrorist admirable?

                  Courage is only admirable when exercised in the service of others, of the greater good, of True North.

                  So what does this all mean for the practicing manager? Define & communicate Purpose clearly. Seek to develop Courage in yourself and your team.

                  Courage is our fuel. Understand that achievement hurts, and that you will fall down many times.

                  ‘Fall down seven times, get up eight times…’

                  Best regards,

                  Pascal

                    This is the time of year when people are trying to turn over a new leaf. The beginning of the year marks a point where people make New Year’s Resolutions. Unfortunately, many fail to keep those resolutions. In fact, 81 percent of resolution's fail within two years. The top New Year's resolutions rarely change year to year. The most popular typically revolve around losing weight, managing stress, getting out of debt, quitting smoking, and learning a new skill.
