    Continuous Improvement Passion with LaShira Champion-King

    Continuous Improvement Passion with LaShira Champion-King

    The unknown enables us to grow when we take on new challenges. You don’t have to leap into it alone when it comes to improving your work. LaShira Champion-King is a passionate builder dedicated to improving project delivery and has helped many construction project teams adopt the continuous improvement mindset. She shares her knowledge and experience in providing value while minimizing waste throughout different projects. She has decades of experience helping people transform to make their project delivery easier and better. 


     


    Gifts and Hooks Introduction Activity 


    Give each person four sticky notes. They will use 3 to state a gift they give to the group (e.g., experience, knowledge of what hasn't worked, Innovation), and one sticky will state a "hook" that will keep them fully engaged in the meeting/workshop (e.g., focusing on the future, open environment). Then post the sticky notes to show commonalities among the group. 


     


    *The use of sticky notes here is a part of "ninja Scrum" for LaShira. It’s her way to start people off with the process without much suspicion.
