You can see why in this video featuring best-selling author and leadership expert, Dr. John Maxwell. Max- well explains how the employees would rather be anywhere but work, and do not want any- thing to impede their goal at the end of the day. This mindset changed radically at my plant after PowerLean was implemented. There was never a race out the door at the end of the shift; employees stayed after their shift for a few min- utes to communicate information to the new shift in order to facilitate the shift transition. For me, this was probably the most important personal accomplishment—people who liked their job and took personal responsibility for the success of the plant. It isn't all of the amaz- ing results that define PowerLean; it is the fun- damental cultural shift in the plant that goes from uninvolved employees trapped in a vic- tim mentality to one in which every employee feels significant and powerful and together they think anything is possible. If this is the result you want in your plant, then the first step you have to make is to decide to commit yourself to being the true leader that will lead the charge. I would be happy to talk to anyone that is struggling to make that commit- ment and make that decision!
