SYNOPSIS OF TOTAL QUALITY LEADERSHIP

Leader and Leadership:

A leader is the one who leads others. Thus a person can be called a leader if he leads some people. The level of leadership varies from a leader of some people to that of group or a business enterprise. The type and nomenclature of leadership vary as per the organization a leader heads, e.g., political leadership, military leadership, business leadership, social leadership, national leadership, global leadership and so on. However, the characteristics and implications of leadership remain, generally, similar in all cases.

Leadership, Competitors, Competence and Performance:

Leadership is full of power, glamour and elan. Its charm attracts many. The post of leadership, thus, becomes highly contentious and competitive. Consequently, a person who desires to be a leader has to compete in the race for leadership, and prove himself better than his competitors.

conflict-management-argueMaybe you've mastered conflict resolution and you like to help others. Maybe you are the one that others come to for help when they have a conflict or you work in an environment where conflict occurs regularly. But somehow you find yourself stepping in and helping to resolve the conflicts around you. Is this a good thing or a bad thing? It depends.

It certainly makes more sense for you to be involved in healthy conflict as opposed to unhealthy conflict. And today we will focus on healthy conflict.


What is healthy conflict? In the course of working together, it is normal to have differences of opinions about how work should be completed or who should complete the work or what is the highest priority— or similar issues. When individuals can discuss these differences in a professional manner without making it personal, that is healthy.People might become animated or passionate during this kind of conversation; but it\'s clear that they care. They care about the subject at hand. They are animated and passionate about an idea, but this passion does not involve trying to hurt someone emotionally or physically.

Question:

I am a project manager working on a project that will dramatically affect the way our company does business. I consider myself something of a communication expert and have made sure to let everyone in the organization know that our project is going to completely change the way they perform their jobs. In fact, since we will be more efficient in the future we probably will not needs as many staff. Well, for some reason people are becoming nervous about our project. The project sponsor has insisted that I do something called marketing communication to start to build a positive image for our project. I am a project manager – not a marketing manager. What is marketing communication?

Chaotic Project Management, part 1

I always thought that writing a good spec before programming is mandatory.

I like short but frequent discussions where a project spec is being written. I found out that having a spec (Agile, or not) is something mandatory. Ever since I understood I have to demand a spec from the customer, even if I have to sit down with him and write it together (frequently), programming became a much faster and easier task to commit.
