Lean Leadership Capability
Leadership Processes to succeed
Tell me and I will forget, show me and I may remember, involve me and I’ll understand.
Consider the people that have had the biggest impact on your professional or personal life? What was it that made their behaviour different, yet so positive? Did they “tell you” what you should do, or did they encourage you to “think for yourself”?

Sometimes, strategy can come across as challenging process. At its core, it is a longer-term plan to deliver key metrics in a longer time frame, typically 3 to 5 years. A useful process for strategic planning is the X Matrix (Hoshin Kanra), which guides leadership teams to answer the following questions for your business:
- What is your Vision statement?
- What are your 3 – 5-year strategic goals?
- How far will you go this year?
- What strategic projects will deliver the strategic and annual goals?
- What are the targets to improve?
Benefits to You:
- Clarity on measurable goals in a given time frame for the business.
- Full alignment of projects to annual and strategic goals.
- Clear measurable project goals that will deliver annual and strategic goals
Delivery of Strategic Projects
With it reported that 60% of projects fail, it is important for businesses to select the right projects and then do these projects right. Two processes that deliver projects systematically are described below. The results are clear, strategic goals in the areas of People, ESG, Quality, Growth, and Productivity are delivered when you implement project portfolio management and project management techniques.
Project Portfolio Management Process
The purpose of the Portfolio management process is to select the right projects to deliver results. With limited resources and increasing demands of the whirlwind of daily activity, it is easy to lose focus on what are the right activities to complete. This process includes:
- Management of a Project hopper
- Selection and prioritisation of the right projects
- Management of resources to deliver the right projects
- Focused alignment between projects and strategic and annual goals
- Recognition of project leaders
Benefits to You:
- Process in place to ensure that you are always working on projects that will deliver strategic and annual goals.
- Decision making process that can adapt to changing business priorities.
- Optimising resource requirements against return of investment.
Leadership Transformation Programmes:
Do you sometimes get the impression that your team are not taking responsibility for the delivery of strategic and tactical activity or accountable for delivery of metrics? You may find that this could be a result of your leadership style.
With Lean deployment, the role of the Leader shifts from doing and directing to supporting, coaching, and mentoring (when can be difficult when you are experienced in the process). This is a fundamental shift for many leaders and can be a little jolt, as you may even have been promoted based on your currently leadership style.
It’s important to first be empathetic towards yourself and then towards others around you. With lean, you will learn to walk with your team, and with change management and situational leadership skills, you will build excellence within your team, from both a performance and comraderie perspective.
5 leadership skills that will transform your business include:
Situational Leadership Skills: Understanding your own style is critical to mastering any leadership skills. In this course, you will learn how to recognise where an employee is currently in terms of competence and capability and how to support the person in any given situation.
Effective Communication and Presentation Skills: Finding it challenging to effectively get your point across? Learn how to engage the hearts and minds of your team through effective, appropriate communication and presentation skills.
Coaching and Conflict Management Skills: Even the most effective teams go through periods of conflict. What is key is to have the skills to coach and mentor team members and work through conflict systematically. This programme will teach you skills around team dynamics, coaching with the GROW model and effective management of conflict situations.
Change Management Skills: With change the one constant in our daily work lives, find out how you can manage change with the minimal impact and the highest level of respect for the people most closely impacted, in an authentic and empathetic approach, including tools from emotional intelligence and Kotter’s change management approach.
We can provide the above support in either a modular approach or a full Leadership Development programme.
