What is the course for


Learn to identify individual priorities that can lead individual excellence in business


Learn how to delegate effectively


Improve personal effectiveness by learning to do more with less

Today it has become more and more problematic to find the time and energy to do everything a professional or manager would like to or is required to do. Days can often end with us feeling exhausted, frustrated and with the sensation of not being able to finish everything that we wanted to. However the lack of time and the feeling of perpetual stress that we often hear about are in most cases due to the lack of a system of personal operational excellence. For many years, businesses have devoted a great deal of effort to achieving excellence through processes, products, organisation and business models, while forgetting to pay attention to the ways in which a person can achieve excellence in the same way.

Reaching your own level of excellence, regardless of the role and position occupied in the company, means applying the first principle of Lean Thinking to people: identifying and maximising value for the customer. In this case, the person working in the company is the customer. Applying Lean Thinking Principles to maximising people’s value and reducing waste is the aim of Lean Lifestyle® and in this two day journey highlighting Personal Excellence, we focus specifically on techniques and concepts that allow us to successfully turn transformation on an individual level into eliminating an array of waste that arises solely from factors related to personal organisation.
