The early leaders of the Lean revolution faced massive challenges of competitiveness: as smaller, weaker Japanese auto manufacturers, they were attempting to challenge huge, established companies in the West.
To their immense credit, these leaders realised that they did not have ready answers to their problems, but they resolved to discover those answers through intense study of their situation and adopting a mindset of continuous learning.
Their attitude was captured beautifully in a few words by Toyota Chairman Fujio Cho:
“Go see, ask why, show respect.”
In this webinar in the continuing series exploring the Leadership Lessons from Lean, we’ll look at how Lean was founded on a leadership mindset of humility, curiosity and a hunger to learn.
