Designed for manufacturers who are committed to building and leveraging the business advantage of a continuous improvement culture, Tools for Conscious Leadership equips manufacturers with the tools to successfully set expectations, provide feedback and handle conflict. Ultimately you will learn how to ship up as a leader to build an engaged workforce that results in higher profits, lower turnover, and better productivity.

  • Session 1 – Performance Model: Behaviors and Expectations
  • Session 2 – Performance Model: Daily Management System
  • Session 3 – Personal Responsibility
  • Session 4 – Constructive Confrontation

This program is designed for companies that have embarked on a continuous improvement journey and desire to develop standard leadership behaviors to sustain their gain. We encourage companies to send at least three members of the leadership team that can commit to the entire program.

“I have utilized the tools taught in the class to improve my daily interactions with all employees. I’ve seen substantial progress from a range of those employees, some of which have become quite the contributors to our Continuous Improvement Program.” – Former Attendee
