Two things to think about. Challenges and Culture.Challenges shape who we are. I think we can all look at who we are and remember a few key challenges we’ve faced and how they have changed us and the way we view things. It certainly helps shape us as leaders.Dr. Kiame Mahaniah, CEO of the Lynn Community Health Clinic.Born in the Congo, raised in Switzerland, educated in the US, Kiame faced remarkable challenges, was immersed in multiple cultures, and has come out of all as a remarkable, yet humble leader that is focused on building consensus instead of being a top down iron fisted CEO.Dr. Mahaniah was kind enough to sit down with LEI’s Chairman, John Shook to talk about growing up in different cultures, from the Congonese to the Quakers, and how he became a CEO in an organization trying to become lean, and helped keep that movement going. Which is something that typically ends lean’s progress in an organization.Additional Articles:Surviving CEO Change, Evolving Through Culture and Being a Humble Leader
