This session will provide a background on how lean thinking and tools can help safety and any HR function. Following the teachings of W. Edwards Deming, Toyota created a production system, now commonly referred to as lean production. What is not well understood is that “lean” works in any office and business, regardless of size. Whether healthcare, small enterprise, food service, or non – profit, “lean” can help improve teamwork, culture and drive continuous improvement, but only if we go back to basics and strip away the mystery that this thinking is only for the manufacturing floor. Participants in the session will gain new insight into both “how” and “why” standards should be developed.

Through a deeper understanding of the upcoming talent shortage and its future implications, HR will be compelled to claim their place at the boardroom table.

HR will have to “stand in the gap” to create a sea-change in thinking, new levels of conscious intention and developing company culture by design rather than by default.

Fifty to 60% of companies fail to achieve their goals and objectives (Source: McKinsey & Co and IBM Global Business Services). What can be done about this and whose responsibility is it to see that the situation improves?
The first question is why does this happen with the answer being because employees don’t know what they need to do to help the company achieve its goals and objectives, and/or because they are too preoccupied with personal issues to do what is expected of them.
The responsibility for this rests with the CEO, however he or she can’t do what is needed alone. While Human Resources should be the obvious choice to address this problem it is not viewed as a “line” function as often as it is “staff”, and as a result, they are not called upon to help with goal achievement.
This presentation discusses both the problem (why companies fail to achieve their goals and objectives) as well as what HR can do to gain the trust of senior management regarding their contribution to the overall effort.

Lots of organizations do leadership development. Some do it well, some not-so-well. But even those who do it well often fall short of the full impact that the program could potentially have. Some organizations fall short by outsourcing leadership development to outside providers who impose their own narrow leadership template. Others fall short by delivering tired content and retread ideas. The key is to build a program that fits your organization’s culture and honors its history, while leveraging best leadership practices from inside and outside your organization.
This webinar will draw on the case study of a $4.5 billion dollar construction company that supercharged its leadership development efforts and, as a result, grew while nearly all of its competitors were shrinking during the Great Recession. Regardless of the content and features your program currently uses, durng this webinar you’ll learn new ways to “supercharge” your program so that participants come away fully engaged and ready to lead.
