About Erica Lee Consulting

 Meet the founder:   Erica Lee Garcia, P.Eng., a Professional engineer whose career has spanned manufacturing, mining, non-profit management and consulting industries.  The common thread has been a focus on problem solving.  Simply put: making things better.

Put serious problem-solving horsepower to work for you

Erica is a Black Belt in Six Sigma, certified in Lean, and experienced in teaching and applying dozens of probem-solving tools.  She has saved hundreds of thousands of dollars through her own improvement projects, and coached others to complete their projects worth millions of dollars.

I founded Erica Lee Consulting in 2011 to help companies everywhere work faster, safer, cleaner, better.   

Improvement through Lean, Six Sigma and Kaizen have a positive impact on the business AND on its employees.  This is because successfully solving problems one at a time for a while changes the culture of the company.  Everyone stops blaming and complaining, and looks for opportunities to improve.  Lower costs, higher quality.  Less waste, much better results!

Sounds too good to be true, but it’s not.  A journey of a thousand miles begins with one step.   Take that first step and get in touch with me today.  I’d love to hear about your organization and what you’d like to do better today!

Consultancy with a social conscience

Enhancing the culture of an organization unquestionably improves the quality of life of everyone in it.  On a humanistic level, this makes sense.   I have some specialized technical skills (statistics being a favourite!), but most of the value that I add is in building bridges of connections and capacity. I connect people to the potential in each other and in themselves.

In 2008, I had the opportunity to see how universal these tools and methods really are. I spent an entire year working in the Peruvian operations of a Canadian company in a Continuous Improvement leadership role. Not only did I learn a lot about culture, business and leadership in general during my time in Peru, but also, after falling in love with the people of Peru, I became interested in the field of international development. I found myself wanting to use my skills and education to help better the lives of those people.

Good for business, good for people

As a professional engineer, it’s important to me that the skills I have use in my working life mesh perfectly with my motivation to change the world for the better. Now, outside of my ‘official’ consulting activities, I support a wide range of professional mentoring, social enterprise and non-profit initiatives. In fact, in 2013 Erica Lee Consulting will begin pursuing B-Corporation status.

In both my work and my volunteer projects, I teach people how to break down and solve problems, empower them to believe in themselves, help them define what success looks like and how to recognize when they have succeeded. I help managers define and communicate and motivate. I help set up everyone to succeed, basically, in making things better.

I thank you for stopping by and hope that you will drop me a line so that we can discover what experiences and goals we have in common, and how I can help you make your business world a whole lot better.
