Why Integrated Leadership Solutions?
In the world of training and development, one of the biggest challenges globally is how to secure implementation of the content. This subsequently also means that there is a limited Return on Investment on most training products. At PSQI we set out from the start to reverse that pattern, so that what we teach is applicable and delivered in such a way, that the organization easily can secure and support the implementation.
Another challenge we saw, was that so much training is segmented and thus acts as “drops-in-the-ocean”. This approach requires even more focus on the implementation but typically receives even less attention at the implementation stage. We are more ambitious for our clients! We want to secure measurable outcomes from each and every workshop.
One of the segmentation problems is particularly present when it comes to the equation of Performance, Safety and Quality! By segmenting training inside these three core areas of all activities* in pretty much all business scenarios, training and development is conducted as if the brain is divided into those three areas.
This is contradictory to how the brain works and that could be one of the reasons, why so many struggles with getting their safety leadership initiatives to work.
Whenever an employee at any given level in an organization, has to do an activity of any kind, the brain initiates their behavior, and this happens in a simultaneous fashion and unless the brain is conditioned to take all three aspects into consideration at the same time, it will pick the behavior that is rewarded, one way or another. Rewards can be extrinsic, be more often they are intrinsic and comes from gratification of the intrinsic motives driving us all.
For this reason, we at PSQI developed a new paradigm for leadership, which we call Integrated Leadership Solutions, in which we incorporate the three core aspects Performance, Safety and Quality into all decision and behavior aspects of the leaders of the organization.

The History of PSQI
Behind the company and brand name PSQI there are many years of experience from international training and development. Anders Piper, who has been a valued consultant and facilitator for more than twenty years, came across a revelation back in 2006, when he conducted a small research project with a client. Although the focus was elsewhere, he discovered that when comparing leaders who created performance and did so in a safe and qualitative way to leaders who were there reason for accidents and poor quality, the only noticeable difference was their level of motivation.
