Event: Lean Culture & the Role of Leadership


Government Directors, Managers and Supervisors:

Agencies across Washington – at the state, county, and city levels – are embracing the Shingo Model as an effective framework for expanding their Lean efforts, and are using The Leadership Challenge to develop the next generation of government leaders.

Join us in Seattle on October 8th to learn how to apply these concepts to yourself, your team, and your organization.



Through participation in this program you will:

  • Be introduced to the four dimensions of the Shingo Model – Cultural Enablers, Enterprise Alignment, Continuous Improvement, and Customer Results – and recognize that it takes relentless pursuit of all four of these dimensions to truly achieve Lean Culture
  • Understand why Leadership Values and Behaviors are the cultural enablers that form the foundation for any sustained Lean effort
  • Learn the Five Practices of The Leadership Challenge, a research-based leadership development approach used by more than 3 million people around the world to improve their individual and collective abilities
  • Complete a 360° 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 a personal action plan based on the results of your 360° assessment to become the best leader you can, and to help your organization achieve a Lean Culture

Only $395 for government employees in the State of Washington (over an $1100 retail value). Program includes:

  • Leadership Practices Inventory (“LPI”), 360° assessment and personal feedback report (retail price: $190 for survey license and administration)
  • Full day workshop, including all supplies and materials (retail price: $995)
