About the course

The Developing Leaders at All Levels course offers a unique and highly effective approach to leadership development through application of philosophy and values-based behavioural change. Break through your development plateaus through learnings based on our Leadership Development Model (LDM). Progress through cycles of deliberate practice to understand not only the actions required for improvement but also the underlying values and philosophy those actions are based on. The Leadership Development Model provides the basis for all talent management activities offered by the Institute.

This course is developed around the Shingo prize winning book Developing Lean Leaders at All Levels: A Practical Guide, written by Jeffrey K. Liker and published by the Institute. The book details a 2-phase learning system:

Phase 1: An in-depth discussion of Leadership values and mindset, building to problem solving and its intrinsic connection to performance measurement and standardization

Phase 2: Aspects are then organized and layered to form a platform for the Phase 2 Leadership Development Model – the core of many GLI courses and programs.
