Peace of Mind: The Next Tool in the Leadership Toolbox
American Society for Quality World Conference (WCQI)
May 06, 2020
Description: Through this interactive sessions, the presenter will share thought leader insights into a new way to view the leadership of quality professionals. We pride ourselves in being subject matter experts in our craft, but miss the mark when we can't influence people to action. It requires a shift in mindset, reflection and development of new skills to reach out to leaders and form relationships. Through these relationships we are trying to influence both on a functional level as well as an emotional level. When the quality professional ultimately learns they are trying to assure "Peace of Mind" for the business leader or business unit, the approach they take to leverage their technical skills to connect with people at an emotional level will drastically different. In this session, we share the stages & stories that I went through along with techniques that can raise the level of influence. The session is meant to be highly interactive so they can learn, ask questions, pose scenarios in a mini-mastermind enrichment session so all can benefit.

Session Outcomes: 1) Confidence - confidence that they have all the technical skills, but have renewed hope to increase their influence through new skills
2) An approach to assessing organizational needs in a holistic way that addresses functional & emotional aspects of an organization in terms of quality
3) Reflective time to thinking about their challenges, empathize and then come to the realization a new approach is needed and the courage to experiment
4) Learn about better messaging of information that will elicit action vs. simply discussion
5) Awareness that quality leader coaching & mentoring is a necessity to ongoing development in their craft.
