Six Sigma Black Belts must possess specific qualities to succeed throughout the deployment cycle. Some of these qualities include effective leadership, motivation, team building, and communication. As team leaders, Six Sigma Black Belts need to know how to facilitate teams and apply motivational techniques to achieve assigned goals. Black Belt leaders adopt appropriate leadership approaches to help develop, strengthen, and integrate all elements necessary for the effective team facilitation. They need to recognize the stages of team development and choose targeted approaches for managing performance at every stage. Finally, they need to develop a communication plan that outlines the why, what, who, where, and how of team communication.
This course offers strategies for effective team facilitation, which involves leadership, motivation, team building and communication. This course is aligned with the ASQ Certified Six Sigma Black Belt certification exam and is designed to assist learners as part of their exam preparation. It builds on foundational knowledge that is taught in Skillsoft’s ASQ-aligned Green Belt curriculum.
