Pull Don’t Push: A Practice Approach to Leadership Impact
Presenter: John P. Dentico
Learning is the leverage point for change. Creating a systematic and practical approach to
leadership impact requires moving past the de facto standard of blended learning to one
designed around pull learning strategies. A pull learning strategy is one in which the hunger to know by participants drives the desire for knowledge. In this practice focused presentation, Dr. John P Dentico will present an integrated pull learning methodology featuring an integrated learning model that includes: The LeadSimm Pull Learning Strategy Model, the Six Disciplines of Breakthrough Learning, the New World Kirkpatrick Model of Evaluation and a three-phase education program evaluation.
Participants will come to appreciate the tectonic shift in leadership education from one focused on traits and behaviors to that of action and practice.
Participants will come to understand the difference between blended learning vs a pull learning education strategy
Participants will understand the pros and cons of computer-based vs. interpersonal simulation methods
Dr. John P. Dentico is a leadership maverick whose work centers on leadership occurring as a practice or intended action rather than residing in the traits or behaviors of particular
individuals. For Dr. Dentico, there is a difference between being a leader and doing leadership. He is the author of Throttle Up: How to Accelerate the Impact of 21st Century Leadership and the creator of the LeadSimm Leadership Impact Simulation Method. He founded LeadSimm LLC.
In addition to his work at LeadSimm LLC, Dr. Dentico served for ten years as a special consultant to the Division of Public Safety Leadership at the Johns Hopkins University and for twelve years as an instructor in the LEEDA program at the FBI Academy. The LeadSimm Method has been used been used to instill 21st century leadership practices in those faced with such complex issues as: counter-terrorism, narco-terrorism, airport security, emergency response, crime reduction, gang warfare, opening day of a new baseball stadium, protection of petroleum facilities, vital ports and bridges and mass transit systems throughout the United States.
A recent recommended book review completed by the US Review of Books had this to say about Throttle Up. Declaring leadership models of the past obsolete, Dentico explains why and how a leadership model of today embraces such significant tenants as mutual trust, collaboration, motivation, relationship networking, diversity, effective training, communication and the power of meaning and storytelling. . . . It becomes clear that the author is nothing short of an expert in this field, and the reader is left convinced that indeed, leadership is something one does (and, as such, can be learned) rather than some abstract quality which only a privileged few inherently possess.
