Their Toyota Way Leadership Model reflects the following. ORDER plays a critical role:
- Commit to Self-Development. Learn to live True values through repeated learning cycles,
- Coach and Develop Others. See and challenge true potential in others through self-development learning cycles,
- Support Daily Kaizen. Build local capability throughout for daily management, and
- Create Vision and Align Goals. Create True vision and align goals vertically and horizontally.
Leaders can’t teach what they do not have. So, they must first put on the oxygen mask of understanding (or at least genuinely commit to and begin to walk the road to understanding) before they can effectively and credibly BEGIN to coach and develop others.
