Kaizen comes from two Japanese words: Kai (improvement) and Zen (good). Over time, it has become known as “step by step improvement or continuous improvement”
 
It is not enough in 2019 to sit back and wait for success you have to be competitive and use your most valuable resource by creating a workforce who are enthused and self-motivated.
 
Kaizen is the perfect way and is a methodology that improves quality, productivity, safety and instils into the workplace a learning culture that yields major improvements over time through small steps of improvement.
 
Unlike many business practices, Kaizen’s strength comes from requiring all workers—from the CEO or MD to the shop floor assistant—to contribute suggestions to improve the business.
 
This masterclass will show you that all sectors can benefit from introducing a Kaizen culture by adopting a simple 5 step process.

Talent management is about getting the best people in the right places at the right time. It is also about developing those highly skilled individuals in a way that realises their full potential and satisfies their career aspirations. Organisations focus so much on what the high potential employee needs to do to meet the business’s needs that they can lose sight of what the organisation needs to do to meet the employee’s needs.  

This masterclass provides an opportunity to take time out and reflect on how you can best support, educate and enable high potential employees and how to use effective career development planning to reinvigorate their enthusiasm for their current position and help them explore and create opportunities within the company.

Trust and integrity are key factors in the leadership of organisations and has come more keenly into focus this year with Parliamentary and political fractures and fashions leading to a deeper questioning of the role of truth and integrity in the workplace. The metoo campaign and racism in sport tell us that all is not well within many areas of corporate life.   

This masterclass will examine how to interweave more trust and integrity into a daily life and will challenge your ideas and help you to set a new path within your teams and organisations.
