Course Description:
Lean organizations strive to continuously improve quality, lead-time and cost performance by harnessing the natural problem-solving creativity of all employees on a daily basis. This focus on problem-solving capability naturally emphasizes the importance of engaging employees critical thinking skills – their “head”. Tapping the full potential of their creativity, however, also relies on engaging their human need to contribute and be creative – their “heart”.

3H Leadership is a series of five focused conversations for leaders ready to engage in the development of their leadership skills to connect with both the hearts and the heads of employees and, in doing so, creating a true high-performance organization. The series content focuses on:

  1. Personal Responsibility
  2. Personal Communications
  3. Leading People for Performance and Improvement
  4. Responding to Criticism and Constructive Confrontation
  5. Managing Change and Transition

The first two sessions explore the building blocks for effective relationships and connecting with the “heart”. The final three sessions focus on using these building blocks in common leadership interactions to connect with both the “heart” and “head” of employees and their true potential as performers, where they willingly give us their “hands”.

The series curriculum is:

  • Aligned with Lean as the “respect for humanity” system and the key Lean management principles of visual management, go and see, standard work, flow, pace and quick Plan-Do-Check-Act (P-D-C-A) learning cycles.
  • Grounded in behavior science and neuroscience – the science of human interactions – and needs based communications.
  • Designed for participants to explore and discover concepts through classroom simulations, experiences and discussions.
  • Built on a foundation of work done by Dan Miller of Dan Miller and Associates, LLC who generously gave NWHPEC and Kari Penca & Associates (KPA) the gift of content and mentorship.
