Enna's Leadership Transformation Program in Japan

Next Available Training Dates in Japan
The task of a true leader is to create an organization that can transform and stay sustainable for the future. Measurable progress must be made in four key areas: Leadership Mindset, Management Processes, Information Technology, and Customer Engagement. In order for you to remain a leader, these four areas must form the ethos of your enterprise strategy.

This formula is exactly how Enna has helped organizations around the world transform themselves through intensive training in Japan and providing comprehensive on-site coaching that was designed by Taiichi Ohno (originator of Toyota Production System). No one can match our direct connection to the original thought leaders who created the principles and methods of Lean. With these principles becoming the standard around the world, you need more than just the basics to move ahead. With our exclusive connections, we can give you the extra step forward that you need.

Why train in Japan with Enna?

Studying about Lean tools and attending workshops alone will never be enough to sustain a true transformation unless you first develop your own willpower to drive change. Leaders need to gain the wisdom, knowledge, and willpower to understand the driving forces and power of Kaizen. You can only experience and absorb this knowledge with us in Japan. No one else offers this kind of knowledge to drive sustainable engagement within your business.

We give you wisdom that you can leverage as a leader to create your own company-wide culture that is open to breaking the status quo.
