Learn how the best teams, “dream teams,” seem to naturally and seamlessly boost productivity, bottom-line performance and employee engagement to enable the use of the lean & six sigma tool set to make more money year over year; regardless of top line revenue. Benchmark and learn how to align your organization, improve leader behaviors, improve team engagement, and improve daily execution to attain consistent, perfect performance measured
by greater bottom-line earnings. Every business can be a dream team of engaged, high-performing “heartbeat leaders” who understand how to improve team performance and use lean, six sigma, & daily problem solving tools to truly create a business where respect for people is more than just a sign on the door. These heartbeat leaders across the organization are the true leading indicators of future business performance. When they have a good day, everyone has a good day and when they don’t, we all know what happens. Learn how to build, customize, teach and coach your leadership team using a leadership tool kit including a 5th
