Kata Talk, Eggnog, and Kentucky Bourbon...These Are A Few Of My Favorite Things!
One of the highlights of 2020, included being a guest on Episode 23 of Mark Graban's and Jaime Flinchbaugh's Lean Whiskey Podcast.
During what seemed like a 15-minute chat, I was blessed with the opportunity to talk about a few of my favorite things with two of my favorite people in the Lean community. The majority of our conversation consisted of us talking about the Toyota Kata and how the steps of the Improvement/Coaching Kata can help the learner and the coach build new skills.
I invite you to take a listen. Learn and laugh with us...you'll be so glad you did!
Cheers and Happy Holidays!
