Today’s guest is Darril Wilburn. Darril is a partner with Honsha Associates, a group of Toyota Alumni that has built a strong reputation from helping companies transform through using the TPS/Lean Philosophy that they learned through their experiences at Toyota.

Today Darril and I will discuss: * The power of learning how people learn * His experience in being a learner and being a coach at Toyota * His view of what respect for people really means * The role of proper communication to people not directly involved with transformation with change management. * The power of trusting the process and people in lean transformation * The pitfalls of focusing on tools and not understanding their purpose. * The need for focusing on humility in learning before teaching Darril will be a speaker at the upcoming Lean HR Summit in San Antonio May 12-13 where he will be speaking about Courage, Humility, & Kaizen: The Keys to Lean Development.
