Welcome to Management Meditations

on Leadership, Learning and Culture

This website provides resources for those implementing lean management, lean leadership, and the now mandatory “hybrid organization.” The courses and information you will find here are based on forty-five years of field work implementing high performance empowered teams and empowering organization culture in dozens of major corporations.

For the past forty-five years, beginning with the redesign of a prison to create a learning environment that reinforced desired habits, I have been working to create healthy organization cultures. I reject rigid adherence to any one theory or methodology, but choose to learn from all and to integrate all into a holistic understanding of behavior and the systems of organization.

 In my very “semi” retirement I am entirely focused on developing online learning to support excellence in management and leadership. I now have more than 160,000 online students. Please see both my own course platform Leadership-Academy.Online and my courses on Udemy.
