Toyota’s Gary Convis, a leader who I have admired greatly, is retiring in June:
There is a quote from Convis that I often use in training sessions and presentations:
“You respect people, you listen to them, you work together. You don’t blame them. Maybe the process was not set up well, so it was easy to make a mistake.”
Hopefully he can do more to educate us about the Toyota leadership mindset after his retirement.
