Human-centered message shared in Canada in December 5-6, 2017

The Love Not Fear message received a warm welcome in Toronto, Canada on December 5 and 6, 2017, at the Canadian Institute's 2nd Annual Conference on "Lean Process Improvement in the Public Sector." Renee's keynote shared the Make Work More Human research and explained how a human centered workplace is necessary for a Lean culture and management system. Public servants from Canadian national, provincial, and local governments were enthusiastic about the importance of decreasing fear and indifference and increasing love and safety at work.
