Leadership Transformation For Manufacturing


Embracing the human element of process

Business processes involve people. Effective business process improvements and innovation gain traction when the people who implement the processes are fully engaged and choose to embrace positive change. Operational excellence moves people from mere compliance to ownership and commitment. Leadership Transformation is for leaders who embrace the journey necessary to excel, innovate and master the ability to lead change. InitiativeOne helps leaders build a bridge from strategic leadership to effective engagement and execution. The process equips leaders to create true champions and reduce the drama that hinders results.

Case Study: Accelerating Growth Across A Whole Division

Even though the market was trending up, the U.S. division of the world’s leading agricultural equipment and chemical company had experienced flat growth two years straight. Senior leadership were wringing their hands over their own ineffectiveness.

InitiativeOne conducted an in-depth assessment of leadership issues, uncovering how they were undermining organizational performance. We worked intensely with the company’s two top leadership tiers in both leadership development and business planning.

In two years, the division went from seventeenth in per capita performance to first among 86 business segments. The senior leadership team remained intact throughout the process, and the division president was promoted as head of the global organization.
