Leadership Development Program

Today’s front line leaders need skills to engage their people, involve everyone in continuous improvement and innovation, coach their employees and create an agile and committed workforce in order to achieve their business goals. 

This course helps participants develop the skills to create a high performance culture and LEAN thinking. 



Tell us more about your experience with the leadership development program. Any insights you can share specific to the mentorship component?
We had a number of our leadership team participate in CME's Leadership Development program and it was received very well by the participants and mentors. The program was filled with very useful and simple to use leadership tools. Participants liked the flow of the course and follow-up by the instructor. One of my favorite components of the program was the mentorship aspect. The program had a very defined process for following up with participants and ensuring they were utilizing the new tools they had learned in the program. 

All of us have participated in a learning event where we were very excited about what we learned and then soon forgot about it the instant we got back to work and were caught up in the day to day business. The mentorship element of this program allows organizations to fully leverage what participants have learned.
-Todd LeRoy, Vice President of Manufacturing, Loewen

What lessons have you already incorporated into your work? 
For me, I incorporated the idea of Leader Standard Work (LSW). I scheduled weekly meetings and LEAN training sessions with my team. I improved the FPG score to 94 in a short period of time....

Would you recommend this training to others? 
I would absolutely recommend this training to others. We are committed to sending other leaders to this course in the future. The combination of a mentor from our company, along with access to coaching from the course facilitator, is very beneficial. Having 'skin in the game' by both the mentor and mentee is something unique and very positive about this training. 
-Ed Martin, VP Operations, Custom Castings

What do you think the overall benefit to / impact on your company will be as a result of this course?
We believe we will see reduced turnover as a result of specific job-related courses for our staff. In the long run, this will definitely have a positive impact on our business, as new employees require specialized training for manufacturing ourproducts. 

In the plant as a whole, the morale has been higher since our supervisors have taken the leadership course. There is more interest in learning about production methods and sharing that learning with others.
-Aynsley Dueck, Marketing Manager, Duxton Windows & Doors
