Corporate training comes in many formats; in class, online, self-study, or blended programs are just some of the options that exist for busy professionals and organizations. But one often overlooked aspect of training could be considered the secret weapon of all programs: coaching. Coaching is teaching that is centered on skills development, building a relationship and driving accountability. With a heavy use of inquiry, this form of teaching helps students to achieve their goals.

Whether it's one-on-one or in a group setting - on the phone or in person - building coaching sessions into Lean Six Sigma programs can have powerful effects on information retention, capability application, and realized goals. These things are essential for organizational development and an ultimate transformation.

Coaching allows the trainer to clarify concepts and tools, listen to progress updates, and resolve interpersonal and organizational issues. Coaches remove roadblocks and share examples from past problem-solving successes. Coaching connects content with experiences and work so that students are successful in applying and sustaining what they've learned.

But HOW do you do it?

In this session, learn key best practices for coaching that leads to real results. These include:-Inspire People to Learn: Influence the student to learn and improve the skills that are important to them. The best results often come from what the student wants to learn, not what they have to learn. Lean thinking is empowering people to solve their own problems.-Set Focused Improvement Targets: Rather than trying to improve everything at once, help the student develop simple and clear action plans to align with desired goals.-Focus on Success: Coach with positive feedback focused on starting desirable practices rather than stopping undesirable ones. The desirable practices eventually eliminate the undesirable practices by focusing on success.

Conference Chair's Message 

Joel Smith

Continuous Improvement is not just something a Lean Six Sigma (LSS) practitioner leads their organization in practicing, but is also a core competency of their professional makeup. That is why more and more innovative and leading companies are looking for leaders that use the LSS way of thinking in everything they do within their organization.

In this era of data science and machine learning, the ability to connect the dots for end to end solutions across the boundaries of people, process and systems is the key to success. This year’s conference is focused on making sure we are “continuing” our journey as practitioners. Whatever your level of experience, you will learn new concepts, new perspectives and network with the best in the industry.
