From the Author

People often ask me, “What is the right path toward leadership?”

There is not exactly a “right path.” Leadership is not about a position or a title. It’s about empowerment and action. It’s about curiosity and continuous improvement. To lead means to make things better, serve your customers better, be more competitive, and leave everything you touch better than you found it.

I believe that the absolute key to successful continuous improvement is the participation of the entire workforce. When it comes to solving problems, the farther you are from the action, the worse the solution. Decisions should be made by the people closest to the action (the front-line employees).

When empowered, anyone can be a leader. I truly believe that leadership and continuous improvement go hand in hand and never go out of style.
