Washington, D.C. (PRWEB) February 7, 2006
The Human Capital Institute (HCI), a global professional association and educator in talent management strategies, announced today that Dr. Noel M. Tichy, renowned professor, author and leadership expert, will host an HCI webcast on February 22, from 1:00 PM to 2:30 PM ET. The webcast was developed in cooperation with Taleo, a leading provider of enterprise staffing management solutions.
In his presentation, "Judgment: The Essence of Leadership," Dr. Tichy will explore a key and often misunderstood leadership trait. The webcast is complimentary and part of HCI's ongoing Masters Series.
"The common misconception is that judgment is innate, but it is a skill like any other that can be developed and refined," said Allan Schweyer, HCI's Executive Director. "Noel Tichy, a pioneer in the leadership field, understands how individuals, as well as organizations, can cultivate judgment. We're pleased he will share his insights in what is sure to be an interesting and informative webcast."
Dr. Tichy is Professor of Organizational Behavior and Human Resource Management at the University of Michigan Ross School of Business and directs the Global Business Partnership, an international consortium for research and executive development. For over a decade, the Partnership ran the Global Leadership Program, a 36-company consortium of Japanese, European and North American companies that partnered to develop senior executives and conduct action research on globalization in China, India, Russia and Brazil. Tichy now heads up the Global Leadership in Healthcare Program, working with CEOs and their senior teams from major medical centers in the U.S along with teams in Europe and India.
Noel Tichy consults widely in the private and public sectors and is a senior partner in Action Learning Associates. Most recently, he led the launch of the Global Corporate Citizenship initiative in partnership with General Electric and Procter & Gamble, designed to create a national model for partnership between business and society.
In the mid 1980s, Dr. Tichy was head of GE's Leadership Center, the famed Crotonville, where he led the transformation to action learning.
Noel M. Tichy is the author of numerous books, including The Cycle of Leadership: How Great Leaders Teach Their Organizations to Win (co-authored with Nancy Cardwell); The Ethical Challenge: How to Lead with Unyielding Integrity (co-authored with Andrew McGill); and Every Business Is a Growth Business: How Your Company Can Prosper Year After Year (with Ram Charan). He has been rated one of "The Top 10 Management Gurus" by Business Week and Business 2.0.
