Hey, Leaders: The Grassroots Transformation is Complete. It's Your Turn!

Lean Leader Summit 2024

Over the past 15 years, significant changes have revolutionized our approach to work: Lean, Agile, Continuous <everything>... just to name a few. Much of this transformation has been established at the team level, evolving into cross-team collaboration.

While the business world seems to be undergoing a fundamental transformation, one aspect remains surprisingly non-agile and non-lean across most organizations: management.

The time is ripe for a leadership shift!

That's why, in this presentation, I aim to inspire all leaders to embrace real change: Change from within. Together, we will explore the essential leadership skills of today. These skills are not innate but rather learnable and trainable. As with anything that's trainable, it's merely a matter of will.

Embarking on a learning journey - or a transformation adventure - suddenly reveals doors we've never noticed before. Real change is adventurous and can be incredibly fulfilling - far more than yet another restructuring - and most importantly, it makes us feel alive.

Hey, Leaders: it’s your turn. Get ready. Get excited.
