Presentation - Developing Unbiased Leader Decision-Making: An Interactive LQ3 Case Study

Abstract:


A new global economy has heightened the demands placed on leaders, including decision-making capabilities. The unbiased leader decision-making model (LQ3) suggests the influence of leader bias in the decision-making process and how developing emotional, cultural, and change leadership intelligences may reduce bias and enhance decision-making.  Dr. George W. Rideout, co-creator of the LQ3, will provide an overview, review the benefits, and guide a live case study assessment of the model.  


In the case study, workshop participants apply the LQ3 to a fictitious business situation.  Case discussion questions focus on encouraging dialogue, such as how the leader in the case scenario exhibits high or low emotional, cultural, and change leadership  intelligence, and how the leader may enhance the intelligences to make unbiased decisions. The case study will allow participants to walk away with a heightened awareness of emotional, cultural, and change leadership intelligence, and applicability to decision-making.  More important, the case will demonstrate how awareness of the function and inter-relationship among these forms of leader intelligence may create a competitive advantage for leaders and their organizations.  


Abstract:


Three forms of leader intelligence (LQ3) influencing a leader’s decision-making ability are emotional (EQ), change leadership (CLQ), and cultural (CQ).  An unbiased decision-making model (LQ3) will demonstrate how awareness of the function and inter-relationship among these forms of leader intelligence can create a competitive advantage for leaders and their organizations.

Presentation - Applying LQ3 in the Classroom: A Case Study

Abstract:


This case study offers an assessment tool for applying the unbiased leader decision-making model, the LQ3 in the classroom.  The LQ3 presented by Rideout and Lillestol (2011) at the Association of Leadership Educators (ALE) conference in Denver, Colorado, on July 11, 2011, blends systems thinking with decision-making and multiple intelligence research.  The model suggests leaders may enhance their leader intelligence and ability to make unbiased decisions by becoming conscious of emotional, cultural, and change leadership intelligences. The model applicability is broad to the leadership field, and includes use in the classroom as a means to develop cognitive decision-making capabilities of students.

Presentation - Communication Intelligence: The Power of Words

Abstract:


Research suggests communication skills are an important skill-set in workers today, including leaders. Communication skills are integral to leadership success, professionally, and personally.  How leaders communicate verbally and in writing may determine peer and subordinate perceptions.  These perceptions may positively or negatively influence the leader’s ability to lead.  Leaders can learn to become effective communicators.  This presentation will include tips and strategies to help leaders become aware of their communication intelligence and become effective communicators.

Presentation - Change Leadership Intelligence (CLQ): A Definition

Abstract:


Change is the new norm for leaders in the twenty-first century.  Leaders must learn to manage change caused by forces such as a global economy, and rapid technological advances.  Leaders can no longer rely on trusted traditions of doing business to maintain a competitive advantage.  Instead organizations must become flexible, agile entities that can change or assimilate to meet market demands, including those posed by competitors. An integral part of this equation is the learning process evident in the organization.

 

Various intelligences play a significant role in how people in organizations learn.  Change leadership intelligence (CLQ), may be an untapped source for future organizational sustainability.  The literature is rich with data on intelligences such as emotional, cultural, social, and practical, but a gap exists when investigating the idea of CLQ. This gap creates an opportunity to investigate the notion, viability, and existence of CLQ.


The purpose of this presentation is to explore the concept of change leadership intelligence (CLQ), and posit a definition using a literature review of pertinent theory, and existing research.  The presentation attempts not only to justify CLQ by comparing and contrasting to other known intelligences, but also identify a link between CLQ, leader effectiveness, and organizational competitive advantage.  Specific suggestions such as developing an assessment to measure CLQ, and creating training programs to develop the intelligence strengthen the scholarly significance for the leadership field, and future research opportunities.

Presentation - A Framework for Leading Change: First-to-Change Mover Advantage Triangle (FCMA)


**Evolution Strategists, LLC principal Dr. George W. Rideout will serve as session chair on Thursday January 5, 2012**

Abstract:


The purpose of this presentation is to provide an overview of a descriptive qualitative research study conducted to identify change management strategies and techniques used by leaders in the U.S. metal building industry.  The research used the Delphi technique to gather data from a panel of senior industry leaders.  This study potentially represents the first such study to ever be conducted about the U.S. metal building industry. Because of this, the study has provided significant opportunity for future learning and growth not only from the existing data, but also through future interpretation of the data.  The study represents a benchmark for existing and future leaders in the U.S. metal building industry to gauge their change knowledge and policies.  


The presentation will review the results of the qualitative study, including a model supported by study data. The first-to-change mover advantage triangle (FCMA) contains specific suggestions for leaders: a) identify change forces that exist in the environment; b) establish the capabilities to distinguish between internal and external change forces; c) develop strategies to manage the change forces; and d) use the change forces to create a sustainable competitive advantage.  The FCMA model creates a long-term framework that leaders in any industry may use to establish, enhance, or guide their ability to lead change.
