Mastering 8 Dimensions of Excellence Workshop

Transforming culture to achieve excellence customers experience and employees embrace is among the most complex tasks leaders face. Learn how to make that much easier, faster and successful by joining other change leaders June 20 and June 21, 2018, for “Mastering 8 Dimensions of Excellence”. The content goes far beyond process-driven change, emphasizing customer-centered innovation.  The workshop is appropriate for business, government, healthcare and others who value growth and want customer kudos, high quality, significant savings, elegant simplicity and best-in-class recognition.

This fast paced, thought-leading and highly practical workshop is designed for uncommon leaders.  It is sponsored by ASQ Columbus.  If you want a clearly articulated method for connecting strategy, culture, measures and customer priorities, this session is for you and your most valued team members.  It integrates, strengthens and takes you beyond initiatives such as Lean Six Sigma, ISO 9001, Baldrige criteria and other approaches developed in the last century.  Many past participants have surprised even themselves with the rapid, eye-popping results they obtained.  

You will be entertained, enlightened and equipped by best-selling author and world-class presenter, Robin Lawton. This program provides unique methods you can immediately apply to all knowledge-intensive work. You'll go farther, faster and higher with the included 2017 book, leadership map and tools available nowhere else. The content is fresh, proven and tailored to your unique context, so room is limited. Special early bird pricing as low as $494/person (over 40% off list) is yours until May 30, 2018 for ASQ members by registering here.

Expect to leave the session with inspiring new insights, an action plan for dramatic results, CEUs and sentiments like the examples in the P.S. below.  

We are eager to help you excel in ways you never thought possible.

P.S.  Here are a few comments from previous participants:

“Excellent seminar! This challenged me to make a mind shift to apply the customer-centered thinking in my work.  The emphasis on creative divergent thinking may be the key to our success in the next 10 years.”   S. McAlexander, AVP, American Honda Motor Company

“During my long career, I was one of the few people in the world to study under Dr. Edwards Deming, Peter Drucker, Joseph Juran, Philip Crosby, Russell Ackoff, Tom Peters and Michael Hammer. This makes me uniquely qualified to say Mr. Lawton's work clearly places him in a position to be today's premier thinker and practitioner of quality as defined by customer satisfaction. It causes revolutionary new managerial thinking and decision making.” B. Laviolette, Ph.D., Corporate Director of Management Systems, Naval Air Systems Command

“I have never experienced a program with a higher return on investment of time and money.  This is also the most clear and direct method of leadership improvement and quality management I have found.” Q. Wilson, Director, MO Dept. of Revenue

 “Using [Robin’s] methodology, we identified nine (9) characteristics of the extraordinary experience, along with one or more measure for each one. The dollar value of that improvement was $8 million/month over what it was five months ago. [Employees] feel like we’ve invented the better mousetrap”. K. Markland, CEO/President, Affinity Plus Federal Credit Union

“I want to be sure you heard from me what a critical piece of work we all did during your session last week. We are already beginning to incorporate the thinking in your model into our efforts in the Mental Health Service. Thanks so much for a superlative seminar.”  R. Goepfert, Chief, Mental Health Dept., Group Health Cooperative, Puget Sound

 “It is funny that, instead of these ideas slowly fading away as often can happen after a course, they are making more and more sense. You have essentially changed the whole way I approach everything I do!  And I am enjoying my job more as a result.”
