Games leaders’ play

Lean Leader Summit 2024

In order to transform an organization, leaders need to transform themselves.

To do so, leaders need to take a mindset shift from “OR” thinking to “AND”-thinking. They need to realize the opportunity they hold in their hands, namely: consciously shaping the system their organization lives in. This in turn shapes the entire culture. In a sense leaders have to play a different game than their teams to be successful throughout the transformation.

Based on a short, interactive live game, I will highlight different mindsets, that are prevalent in today’s leaders. From their we will explore how leaders play a different game, than their teams, and what mindsets are most supportive for the transformation.

I’ll close with some conrete advise and handy tips for leaders to up their game!
