In cooperation with the Harvard Business Club of Washington, DC, we are pleased to present a conversation with Fred Stahl on Worker Leadership.  Worker Leadership is a new and innovative production system that creates jobs loaded with responsibility and authority—which workers love because they can be more productive.  Managers are thrilled with the dramatic improvements in enterprise productivity, while shareholders love the higher profits. and unions are attracted to a new and vital role.

Join us to hear from Fred Stahl about the theory, strategy and practice of Worker Leadership as he shows why it is the future of work. Mr. Stahl is the author of a new book titled “WORKER LEADERSHIP: America’s Secret Weapon in the Battle for Industrial Competitiveness”.
