Participants at the CACEO Annual Conference in Redondo Beach expressed a great deal of interest in the topic of Lean Culture and Organizational Health. To help county officials learn more and begin to develop a strategy for your own organization, Integris is facilitating this special session

Building and sustaining a Lean Culture and a Healthy Organization does not come simply from teaching people how to use lean tools like Value Stream Maps and Kaizen Events. While those are of course critical activities, none of them will deliver meaningful gains to customer satisfaction, employee engagement or financial stewardship unless people in leadership positions – from front line supervisors all the way up to agency directors – regularly practice the leadership behaviors that enable a Lean Culture to thrive.

Leading in a Lean Environment with The Leadership Challenge develops skills and knowledge required for any leader at any level who wants to contribute to reinventing government and providing greater value to the residents your serve.

Join us to learn how to apply these concepts to yourself, your team, and your organization.

Through participation in this program you will:

  • Understand why Leadership Behaviors are the foundation for any sustained Lean effort
  • Learn The Five Practices of Exemplary Leadership, a research-based leadership development approach used by more than 1,000 people in Washington and over 3 million people around the world to improve their individual and collective abilities
  • Complete a self assessment of your current leadership behavior using one of the world’s most widely used leadership assessment tools: the Leadership Practices Inventory® (“LPI®”)
  • Begin to develop an action plan to help your organization acheive higher levels of effectiveness, efficiency and accountability

Why Should You Attend?

This program is designed to help you:
  • Align your teams around shared goals and a common vision
  • Establish higher levels of trust with your colleagues
  • Be more effective at driving change and improving performance
  • Unleash the skills and abilities of those you lead
  • Have more fun as you create engagement and team spirit

An Evidence-Based Leadership Model

The Leadership Challenge® is an evidence-based leadership development model that is backed by over 30 years of rigorous research by Jim Kouzes and Barry Posner. Since 1982 Kouzes and Posner have continued to conduct hundreds of interviews and case studies to understand the times when people perform at their personal bests. Intensive research and analysis has revealed that five fundamental practices were present during extraordinary leadership achievements. These behaviors are known as The Five Practices of Exemplary Leadership®. This approach is now the world’s most practical model for leadership development and is helping organizations around the globe increase the success of their Lean Transformations.
