In November 2017 Ron Pereira spoke with Renée Smith on the Gemba Academy Podcast Episode 191, "How to reflect on the roles of fear and love in continuous improvement."

Since then we've heard from people all over the world, Canada, Australia, the UK, Spain, and New Zealand. who listened to this podcast and responded with enthusiasm. The message of less fear and indifference and more love and safety at work is universal and core to what it is to be human.

Lean organizations everywhere are striving to create a workplace where employees continually learn and grow so that they can solve problems, discover new solutions, and create amazing results for customers. That growth happens when the workplace is physically and psychologically safe though still challenging. This balance of both safety and discomfort happens best when we feel loved.

It's what the world needs now. (Sorry, couldn't resist that one!)
