Webinar Overview

The Acceptable Leadership Model

The acceptable leadership model has been moving for some time from an autocratic, top-down decision model to one where it collects information and presents it to the community for feedback and modification.

This shared-power world works when everyone understands the benefits and risks.

Join Barbara to learn how you can create a consensus building leadership model in your company that will transform how you create, deliver, and service your products. You will learn:

    • The meaning of shared power and its risks
    • How to forge an agreement to act in concert and mutual respect
    • Techniques to collaborate to search for solutions
    • Building consensus to support the overall mission
    • Implementing new policies, programs, and plans

Join Barbara for an introduction or refresher on how you can use this leadership model to advance your career and build a stronger corporate culture.
