The Edges of Lean — Episode 19: Continuous Improvement and Grief

What a year we’ve been through!  One thing you can say for sure about the COVID-19 pandemic is that we’ve all experienced massive change, and a lot of that change has involved loss.  Some have lost family members, friends, neighbor, some have lost jobs, others have lost their businesses. For those of us who practice lean thinking, this means that we are working with people who are living thorough many levels of grief: our employees, our clients, our bosses, our colleagues, and even ourselves.

Anthony Casablanca is an accomplished lean-thinking senior executive who consults with business leaders on purpose driven leadership. He is the co-author, with his brother Guy Casablanca, of “The Dying Art of Leadership: How Leaders can Help Grieving Employees Excel at their Work.
