Leadership Models

Doug Plucknette | Contributing Host, RELIABILITY CONNECT

If you google leadership you’ll get any number of “hits”, and opinions about leadership.  In this session we’ll be reviewing several models for leadership, including those of:

  • Ledet and its three tiers of executive, operational and shop floor leaders,
  • Bennis and the differences between leadership and management,
  • Collins and putting people first and strategy second in combining three intersecting principles,
  • Donnithorne and the West Point model which combines courage, discipline, integrity, perseverance and loyalty,
  • Wickens and his notion of the ascendant organization which combines engaging people to create disciplined processes,
  • Koestenbaum who combines vision, courage, reality, and ethics,
  • As well as others, and exploring some of their common themes.

We hope you enjoy this episode!
