Humans react to the environment around them and as lean leaders change that environment, so will their perception of it. Poorly run companies with inefficient processes will have a negative impact on the employees. Lean is a powerful improvement tool that not only can change company performance, but also positively change how the employees feel about working. Waste-ridden processes only create dysfunction, provide no sense of targets, institute failure, and reduce forward-thinking approaches to working. Lean is not the one and only business model. It must be incorporated into lean leaders' existing business model to further assist in achieving critical business goals. Academic-type leaders like nice step-by-step guidelines. There are no Lean textbooks.
