Lean Leadership has the characteristic that we involve the employees in the work of making improvements on the farm. It creates motivation and commitment in a completely different way than top-down leadership. But it is not that easy, so exchanging experience in groups and coaching are popular methods for developing your leadership.

Individual management training and coaching of managers

Management development works really well in a dialogue where we talk about what is important to the manager right now. When faced with a problem, learning is very effective. When we train and find solutions together, something happens.

Operations managers must both look down towards the employees and upwards towards the owner or the board. This makes the role of the middle manager particularly difficult, which is why there is a need for coaching on the day-to-day management.

I do management training and coaching of managers on the farm and very often with online follow-up. The leader sets an individual goal that we pursue. We take one step at a time, learn, train and measure.

The manager training can take place in a long-term course at a fixed price per month and it can also happen as short courses focusing on a particular topic.

Management group, where managers develop their skills, spar with each other and become better at motivating their employees.

Focus Group Lean Management

Owners and managers participate in a discussion group where they discuss Lean Management in their business. We train implementation of the Lean culture, Lean tools and give each other sparring.

The group meets four times a year. Each meeting has a specific theme that is linked to the participants’ everyday life. Between meetings, participants receive coaching on their own challenges and goals.

You join the group for one year at a time. It costs DKK 5000 + VAT for one year. In addition, participants pay for meals for the meetings.
