Engage and develop people in order to make continuous improvement a daily reality. With a effective leader as a teacher and a daily coach, process improvement and people development go hand in hand.
Create environment within your organization in which people are empowered through concrete experience to develop conviction, trust in a vision, face challenges and come out stronger and act decisively in response to rapid change.
It largely comes down to creating a culture and then constantly reinforcing consistent practices that enable true leadership to develop. Culture and leadership are two sides of the same coin, and both must be constantly-literally ever day-recreated and reinforced through deliberate attention and action. Continuous improvement of processes requires continuous leadership.
