Introduction to Deming Leadership Principles (Virtual Workshop)


Are you frustrated with some of the ways your team or organization functions? Maybe you are worried about the future of your company? Do you have great ideas for improving morale, increasing productivity, or new innovations but aren’t sure how to make changes?

Join our expert facilitators for this workshop, delivered in 3-hour sessions over 3 Wednesdays, that will introduce you to a new way of thinking about your organization’s practices, your team’s interactions, and your role as a leader. The goal of this training is to introduce you to ways to build happier, more effective teams, use resources more wisely, and effectively implement the ideas you – and other team members – have for improvement.

In this workshop you will:

  • think about how current practices are impacting your staff and the organization as a whole (positively and negatively.)
  • understand why new thinking – a new lens – is needed.
  • get an introduction to Dr. Deming’s System of Profound Knowledge.
  • discuss how to apply the new Deming lens to your teams and organization

Who should attend?
This live, engaging training is an introduction to Deming leadership principles for new and veteran managers and team members.

This workshop will be delivered live over Zoom. Sessions will be recorded and available to registrants after the workshop.
