ASQ Illiana Section 1213 – Monthly Meeting (Virtual), Leadership: Cracking the Code for Today's Professionals
Leading in a changing world is especially challenging work. Just when you are feeling most pressured and vulnerable, you need to be strongest and most generous in mind and spirit. Indeed, as HBR author John Kotter notes, "More change always requires more leadership." What makes a great leader? This presentation begins to answer this question by presenting a quality professional relevant five-rule framework to apply in real life (adapted from the Harvard Business Press book “The Leadership Code” and detailed in a recent series of Cutter Consortium Executive Updates co-authored by the speaker).

Beginning with the ultimate rule of leadership, personal proficiency, the speaker will discuss seven principles that guide effective leaders. The speaker will then explore the short-term orientation of leadership, with examples for day-to-day action, about how the great leader must be a talent manager and be an executor. Finally, the speaker will discuss the long-term orientation of leadership, how the great leader must also be a human capital developer and a strategist. Some leaders may have skills as executors and even talent managers in order to get things done. However, as a leader reaches more senior levels in the organization, they must become proficient in all of the areas.

Attendees will learn how we:
  • Apply leadership rules to enable disciplined actions that accomplish desired organizational outcomes that drive favorable business results.
  • Avoid the trap of emphasizing one element of leadership over the others.
  • Crack the leadership code — and take your leadership to the next level.
