Top performing organizations depend on great leadership

Effective leaders know that the secret to their success is a combination of discipline, preparation and opportunity. In aerospace and defense, the industry’s existential and operational challenges also reveal many potential opportunities. Forward-looking organizations recognize they can improve leadership success at all levels by focusing on “preparation” – with robust leadership training programs – to propel their leaders ahead of expectations.

Today’s industry leaders require both unique subject-matter expertise and proficiencies in listening, empathy, thinking, assessment, evaluation, collaboration, inspiration, strategy-to-execution vision, and perhaps most importantly, communication. These essentials need to be distilled and delivered into operationally-practical, and industry-relevant, programs.

Safety is at the core of our process industry business. Tying together safety leadership and operational discipline seems straight forward, but can be challenging.It was therefore a surprise to many that a course with the word “Emotional” in the title would be a good use of time, yet due to well-developed and skillfully delivered meaningful information, the value was clearly there.This training connected TAPS leaders and workers to a topic relevant and crucial to the success of our operation.I see workbooks on my employee’s desks today where they can easily access the material.
