& Coaching Kata
This month we are focusing on coaching. What's an impactful learning experience a coach has created (designed?) for you? What made it effective?
There is a natural path for you and your teams to follow in order improve your lean thinking and practice together. This way to lean was laid out over the trilogy of business novels written by Michael and Freddy Ballé – The Gold Mine, The Lean Manager, and, most recently, Lead With Respect – all Shingo Research Award winners.
