Today's episode of “My Favorite Mistake” is another one that Lean practitioners will especially like.
My guest, Sabrina Moon, talks about how she (unfortunately) learned “command and control” management in her early days at General Motors. She talks eloquently about “leading with shame” and how she eventually (thankfully) learned new approaches, including Lean leadership.
Sabrina and I share stories about the shaming style of leadership, as we both have some emotional scars from our time working at GM. We didn't work together, but we might as well have, given the similarity of the culture at our plants.
