Keynote Presentation — Maximizing Human Potential
Unlocking Human Sigma by Understanding the Nature of Talent.
Human Sigma Plus Six Sigma
There’s much emphasis today in business on things like Six Sigma, Lean, and TQM. Most managers are good at tasks like project management, eliminating waste, driving down efficiencies, and quantifying information and results.
But when it comes to engaging people in the workflow process, task-focused managers often unintentionally use the same “six-sigma thinking” and apply it to the people on their teams. And the result is they don’t get the outcomes that they could. And if they do get outcomes, no one likes being on their team (but just keeps quiet).
Performance = Skills and Strengths
Too often we can think only in people’s skills rather than skills and strengths. Human Sigma leaders understand the correlation between motivation, engagement, and performance.
Human Sigma is the process of improving engagement levels of employees and customers. It focuses on enhancing the human aspects of organizational performance that also drive positive financial outcomes.
Leaders Maximize Potential by Making Us Human
Companies can get off course when they try and make their “people” more productive while ignoring what makes them fully human. It’s been said that bosses drive over people. Leaders inspire. Bosses push. Leaders pull. Bosses keep power. Leaders give away power. Bosses command their direct reports. Leaders invite them into the process. Bosses want things from people. Leaders want things for people.
