Leading a Lean Thinking & Lean Health Revolution

Q1: How can we create workplaces where every voice matters, everyone thrives & finds meaning, and change & innovation happen naturally?

That’s really easy and is done if you believe everybody has something to contribute. But if you’re a leader and you think you’re the smartest one and have all the answers, then you’ll never create that environment. And even more importantly, as the leader, you must be willing to celebrate it when people come up with ideas that are more creative and insightful than yours. You must believe philosophically that people are smart and have the capacity to come up with better ideas than you. ~Paul
