What's in a name?

A lot. A name is a reflection of the business and how it does its work.  Kaizen Solutions for Human Services Ltd. is about:
  • Supporting what really matters to businesses, organizations, and the people who work in them
  • Continuous improvement in all aspects of life, including work
  • Emphasizing and building upon strengths, assets, and potential
  • Working in a good way for both people and organizations
Kaizen is an approach, a way of thinking. Kaizen comes from the words, "Renew the heart and make it good." Adopting kaizen may mean changing the "heart of the business" including the corporate culture and structure as Kaizen Solutions assists companies to translate their corporate vision and mission into every aspect of a company's operational practice.

Taken from the words "Kai" (continuous) and "zen" (improvement), kaizen is often translated as "ongoing, continuous improvement." This means continuing improvement in one's personal life, home life, social life, and work life. When applied to the workplace, kaizen means continuing improvement involving everyone - from the front-line employee to the CEO. Support throughout the entire structure is necessary to become successful at developing a strong kaizen approach.

The notion of Solutions is also a mindset. We seldom find the right solutions by studying problems. A focus on solutions necessitates attention towards that which is working, previous positive experiences, strengths of the individuals and organization, assets, and potential. We use a "strengths-based" model and "appreciative" coaching as part of our strategy to achieve and sustain outstanding performances. Thus, we capitalize on people's strengths and core competencies, particularly in the area of leadership, teamwork and communication.

for Human Services - Companies and organizations are made up of people with personality, interests, strengths, challenges, desires, goals, families, friends, obligations. Multi-faceted individuals. Our focus is on the individuals who make up the organization. We care about people.
