Problem Solving Leadership: A Workshop for Quality and Continuous Improvement Professionals
Dr. Jeffrey G. Soper, Ph.D., HRCI
Author, Professor, Executive, Coach, 6 Sigma Black Belt
Since the early sixties, literally thousands of books and articles have been written about leadership – what it is, what it can do, and how to develop it. Global spending on leadership training and development has ballooned from approximately $10B in the mid-eighties to a staggering estimated $60B in 2013. The promise of leadership is compelling however this promise is yet to be realized. In his upcoming book Problem Solving LeadershipTM, Dr. Jeffrey G. Soper challenges the conventional wisdom of current leadership development thought and practice stating that “The problem with leadership can be found in the definition of the leadership problem.” His challenge is not that the focusing upon leadership skills and follower receptivity is wrong, but rather that it is incomplete.
Problem Solving LeadershipTM contends that a, or perhaps the, key element of the leadership problem is missing – the nature of the work to be accomplished. Through a combination of facilitated discussions and activities, participants will gain high level insight into a few of the key concepts, models, business value propositions, and associated tools upon which Problem Solving LeadershipTM is based. This 1-day workshop - offered exclusively to the Charlotte Section of ASQ – provides a preview of a more expansive blended learning Problem Solving LeadershipTM program to be introduced in June, 2013.
