Third Annual Leadership Dialogue
Chevy Chase, Maryland
Oct 19, 2006 8:00 am - 4:00 pm
Sponsored by the American Society for Quality - Government Division
Without a doubt, the topic of "Leadership" is the most common subject for business books today. From "Servant Leadership" to "Authentic Leadership," researchers and authors like Jim Collins and John Kotter work to unlock the mysteries of successful leadership. Leadership is a foundation for business excellence in the Baldrige system. But we don't see a lot of discussion about leadership in the Quality Improvement press. What is the cutting edge of leadership theory and practice today? How can I learn from leading teachers and practitioners - and is there ever a way to get past the "talking head" presentation, and really interact with these thought-leaders?
For the third year in a row, you have an opportunity to attend a unique "Leadership Dialogue" event, sponsored by ASQ and the Government Division. The "Leadership Dialogues" provide a full day in a small group with a panel of unique and innovative experts on leadership. Our panelists have a story to tell. But the story is also yours to create, as you jump right in with questions and discussion at every step of the way. Later in the day, the panelists join in with you at small table groups, and engage in deep discussion about the challenges and opportunities facing you in your own leadership work.
The 2006 Leadership Dialogue event is being held in Chevy Chase, Maryland, on October 19th. The day-long session will be held at the National 4-H Conference Center. This year's presenters will include Ottawa-based author and coach Janice Calnan. Janice had the pleasure of studying and working directly with Dr. Deming for several years, and she has her own "profound knowledge" of Deming's later work on human dynamics and qualitative measurement. Janice is the author of SHIFT: Secrets of Change for Leaders. Also joining us this year is Paul Davis. Paul is a faculty member at the National Defense University. He is a long-time teacher of leaders and leadership. Paul will be talking about the impact of the "new science" of complexity and the theory and practice of leadership. Our opening keynote presenter will be T. Irene Sanders. Irene is an author, consultant, and head of a policy institute in Washington, D.C. Irene has also worked extensively with new ideas in leadership and organizational change, and has written extensively about strategic thinking.
At just $299, this is a must-attend opportunity for anyone involved with issues of leadership (and is there anyone who isn't?). For further details, and registration information, please contact Bruce Waltuck, at 609-577-1584, or by email.
