It is also pretty horrendous how many people claim to be a Lean Coach, with no comprehension or training in Coaching for Performance.

Personally I saw this as a weakness in the Lean Thinking system around 3 years ago, after discussing with a friend, who leads one of the leading Coach Training and delivery practices here in NZ.

With 25 years+ experience at the Gemba, I thought I could call myself a Coach, but on reflection, I was only just getting by.

Back in February and although I was a little uncomfortable to go back to the classroom, I took the time and invested my hard earned cash to be properly training.

I am now a certified coach, who although still under the watchful eye of coaches, am claiming a bit of a re birth as a true advocate of Coaching for performance in all aspects, not just in lean.

Already I am adding a whole dimension to my services to my clients as I blend Coaching with my mentoring, consulting and training.

So next time someone claims to be a Lean Coach, ask them to show you where, and how long did they train as a professional coach, and ask which qualifications body they are registered and certified with?[/fusion_text][/fusion_builder_column][/fusion_builder_row][/fusion_builder_container]
