ISO 9000 & AUDITS WORLD CONFERENCE ABSTRACT
Coaching for Success Within Continuous ImprovementKorey Zawadzki, Sr. Partner, VP Operational Excellence and Business Development, Competitive Solutions, Inc., Goldsboro, NC, USA
During this dynamic session, the presenter will demonstrate why it is critical to incorporate coaching with any Continuous Improvement program. Have you ever tried to implement a great continuous improvement idea and it failed? You are not alone as many organizations have found the value in utilizing continuous improvement tools and techniques. These tools are typically used with a belt type certification program. Once the individual follows a block of instructions, they are then released to go find a continuous improvement project, form a team, and implement the change following a methodical process. Unfortunately, this is when the disconnect happens. Often the newly designated continuous improvement leader is left with little or no guidance on how to influence.
Through this highly interactive session, the facilitator will discuss the human side of coaching for success within a CI environment. Additionally, the presenter will share critical insights on how to inspire, motivate, recognize achievement, as well as hold team members accountable. This is an essential presentation for executives and CI Leaders to ensure a successful continuous improvement journey
