Leading for Organizational Impact
David Green - Finance Director of the Global Combat Systems Weapons business unit of BAE Systems
"You're about to go on a great journey — so long as you embrace the program and make your contribution." That is the advice to potential participants of CCL's Leading for Organizational Impact course from David Green, Finance Director of the global combat weapons business unit of BAE Systems.
Attending CCL's Leading for Organizational Impact course provided David Green, a finance director at defence company BAE Systems, with "an excellent opportunity to slow down and reflect upon why my leadership style was not being as effective as it had been in the past".
Prior to attending the course, Green's main challenges had been how to implement sustainable business change, how to forge a business from company assets in the UK and Sweden as well as understanding Swedish business culture and norms.
Attending the LOI program helped Green adapt his personal leadership style to be effective in a multi-national team and to lead with a greater degree of empathy.
"The multi-company / multi-national group of participants and tutors was most helpful in this regard, enabling issues to be viewed through a number of different prisms," Green said.
"The classroom work, role-playing and the observation and feedback activity all contributed to a powerful learning experience, refreshing some ground I had covered before but introducing new material and giving old concepts a different slant."
