Self scored Quiz – Leadership Pioneer Series

There were 18 pioneers shared over the last couple weeks in our Management, Quality and Leadership 101 refresher series. Many of our LiaV readers and commenter’s gave other suggestions and fantastic reminders of other key contributors.

Here is a self scored quiz – only two questions and one demographic:

• How many of the 18 pioneers had you ever heard of?

• How many of the pioneers could you generally say what their contribution was?

• Are you a Gen Y, Gen X, Boomer or WWII Generation?

For example – prior to writing the series my answer would have been – I had heard of all 18, I could remember the contributions of 15 without looking and I’m technically a boomer, but really Generation Jones!

What are your answers?

• 1911 Principles of Scientific Management Fredrick Taylor

"I recognize 9 of the 18, can state general contributions of 7 of the 9 and am an (early) Gen Xer. I would not have thought to ask about Quality pioneers however it makes sense since you're considering the Boeing context! I would add a few other leadership "pioneers" in terms of a second wave of pioneers: Ken Blanchard (situational leadership) Kouzes & Posner: The Leadership Challenge (based on interviews and surveys of thousands of leaders) Max DuPree (Leadership Jazz and Leadership as an Art) These 4 leadership thought leaders have greatly informed my collaborative leadership approach and for me describe the relational and non-positional leadership behaviors that have captured the complexity of leading and following."
