Improvement is truly continuous only when ‘scientific thinking’ cascades down from management to every level of a company. Building such a continuous improvement culture needs a change in how we manage people. Managers would need to move from the traditional directive style of management to become coaches who develop their team. But this is easier said than done!! How do you build a coaching culture ? What does that look like? What are some pit falls to be aware of? Join our round table discussion to discuss more about coaching for continuous improvement.
