          Because it makes things small and personal -- and thereby helps to dispel Big Company Disease.

          Big companies take themselves seriously. Laughter punctures the balloon and drenches things in the light of sanity.

          For organizations big & small, I'd say "embrace your inner smallness".

          I give a talk called "Everything I Learned I Learned in a Greek Restaurant"

          People seem to like it.

          Greek restaurants are the epitome of small, fast and funny.

          Small and fast always beats big and slow.

          That's it.

              Giving recognition and sharing appreciation is a core component of Respect for People. Employee recognition programs are a great way to boost employee engagement. However, more often than not, they end up doing the opposite of engaging people. Poorly structured employee recognition programs end up causing a lot more harm than good. 
              So why do 80% of U.S. employees say they aren’t recognized enough for their contributions? 40% of employees say that they would put more energy...

                  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.
