Break the Telling Habit

We all want to lead innovative, creative teams. Ones that are capable, confident, and engaged. But for some reason, yours just isn’t working out that way.

If you can learn to break the “telling habit” and start tapping into the power of effective questions, you open up whole new horizons of possibility for your organization, your team, and yourself!

Introduction to Hoshin Kanri: Getting Started With Personal Hoshin

Create Your Personal Strategic Plan.

Are you curious what hoshin kanri (strategy deployment) is all about? Are you interested in learning how you can apply strategic planning to yourself?

Join 40-year Toyota leader Isao Yoshino and Katie Anderson for an introductory course on hoshin kanri and personal hoshin. You will learn the fundamentals of hoshin kanri and make progress on developing your personal hoshin (strategy) document using the Toyota hoshin framework.

Continuing with Hoshin Kanri: How to "Check" to Create a "No Blame" Culture

Pursue Continuous Improvement.

How often does your organization, your team, or you “check”, study, and reflect on progress towards goals? How do you create a culture that welcomes “bad news” and makes problems visible?

Learn how to effectively “check” on the progress of a significant initiative or personal goals, and how to create a “no blame” culture where bad news and problems are seen as a source of learning.

Plan. Implement. Improve. Strategy Across the Hierarchy.

In this bundle you will receive both the Introduction to Hoshin Kanri workshop and Continuing with Hoshin Kanri workshop.

This learning experience introduces concepts that Yoshino and Anderson have taught together in in-person events around the world and in the book Learning to Lead, Leading to Learn. In this training, you’ll not only learn about hoshin kanri but you will dive deeper into the “how to” of hoshin kanri, checking, and your personal practice.
