Mastering 8 Dimensions of Excellence Workshop – San Jose City College
November 7 @ 8:00 AM - November 8 @ 5:00 PM$795
San Jose City College is pleased to bring Mastering Excellence’s author and world acclaimed leadership strategist, Robin Lawton, to San Jose November 7-8, 2018 for a two-day workshop on cultural change. Registration is $795/person until October 15, $995 after that if seats are available.
Cultural change is among the most complex endeavors a leader can pursue. This workshop simplifies and accelerates your success. It shows you how to apply a unique system and road map that is easy to understand, fast to execute, customer-focused and strategic. Proof of effectiveness is in the millions of dollars saved, time reductions of 80%, tidal waves of customer kudos and recognition of excellence routinely earned by practitioners. That can be your future. The alternative, for those without this thought-leading, highly pragmatic guidance, is to get stuck on operational, internally process-focused, project-driven improvement efforts rooted in manufacturing practices with limited relevance for today’s knowledge age enterprise and its customers. You can do far better.
Transformation leaders like you have high expectations, a vision of the possible, urgency to engage others, risk tolerance and are impatient for results. All you need is a clear and proven path to success. Join this stimulating, interactive and entertaining session for a thought-leading and pragmatic approach. It will strengthen your ability to achieve strategic outcomes, convert customers to fans, link values with measures and engage employees. Come with a team and leave able to immediately begin deployment. Get enlightened, inspired and equipped for results!
This fast-moving, content-rich workshop uses an elegantly simple framework and new tools to transcend practices such as Lean, Six Sigma, ISO 9001, Baldrige Award Criteria and related approaches. Your world-class presenter and best-selling author uses a jargon-free style to deliver content customized and relevant to everyone in a knowledge-intensive enterprise.
This session is designed to create heroes who are able to excel, engage and excite. Leave with a practical new way to:
– Define and visibly improve customer success
– Concretely connect strategy, performance measures and high-impact change
– Integrate and advance your existing initiative(s) to the next level (including Lean, Six Sigma, Baldrige, ISO 9001, Operational Excellence, Lean Six Sigma, HCAHPS, VOC, and more.)
– Achieve results you never thought possible
