Article Body:
Why do organizations come together every year at the 2005 Excellence Fair
held by the Professional Association for Computer Training?

It is because something worked well for an organization and valuable
information needs to be shared. This year at the 2005 Excellence Fair it
was Cargill, the international food provider (located in over 59
countries), that was recognized for their Transition into Leadership
curriculum that helps employees transition into leadership roles.

So, what is it about Cargill’s leadership curriculum that has led to such
great success? It began when Cargill recognized that great team members
also make great leaders. But, the insights, skills, and vision needed to
be an effective leader must be developed, practiced, and learned over
time.

As such, the focus of Cargill’s leadership development program is to
provide new and aspiring leaders with the skills required to confront the
challenges and opportunities that a leadership role entails. In the
program, aspiring and new leaders learn how to guide, empower, and assist
the efforts of others towards greater success. These newly developed
leaders are instructed on how to lead people, make a difference in their
work, and fulfill leadership expectations.

So how is this leadership development program different from all of the
others? This program provides new leaders with the key tools for leading
effectively, while at the same time making the program specific to the
development needs of each attendee. Most programs on the market do not
focus on the transformation process aspiring leaders must go through to
maximize their effectiveness.

The Transition into Leadership curriculum was designed to:

      Introduce the best ideas and practices in leadership today

   Identify the significant differences between leadership and
management
   Determine the participants own leadership strengths and areas
for improvement

   Develop and practice sound leadership skills and abilities

   Learn “best practices” through close affiliation with other
Cargill leaders

   Communicate effectively and reinforce, mission, goals, and
vision

    Take accountability for business results and team member
development

   Embrace change and challenge the comfort zone of team members


Cargill’s leadership development program places great importance on their
employees and know that they are the key part of a successful future. As
a result they seek the best programs in order to create development
opportunities for their employees and leaders around the world.

Cargill selected CMOE to partner with them in the development and
implementation of the Transition into Leadership program. At the Center
for Management and Organization Effectiveness we have been helping
Cargill to create, develop and implement their Transition into Leadership
program and fulfill a variety of training needs.

The past 27 years CMOE has been instrumental in designing leadership
development programs for multinational organizations. We help our
clients improve the leaders of today and help create the leaders of
tomorrow.
