Leadership

Developing Future Leaders

Shive-Hattery’s Leadership Development Program (LDP) enhances the abilities of home-grown leaders within the company. LDP develops a pool of change agents as they advance their leadership knowledge and skills through the 15-18 month program.

Jim Lee, president, facilitates LDP which routinely consists of two classes of 8-10 employees each, with two-day-long discussions occurring every three months. Approximately 100 alumni exist from the 20-year-old program who now share a common language and knowledge base as it pertains to leadership within the company of 400 employees. 

Behind the Scenes of Shive-Hattery’s Leadership Development Program



The program builds leaders from within to then lead initiatives across the company. Leadership occurs at all levels of the organization diminishing the top-down management style that Shive-Hattery seeks to avoid. Over 70% of LDP alumni have stayed with Shive-Hattery to become leaders and create positive, adaptive change.
