A true leader has the ability to step back when required. He has the strength to let go of his power and let his team take charge. Gary Yogan is one such leader. After assuming the role of Vice President and General Manager of the Light Gauge business unit, Gary was selected to assume additional leadership of the Specialty Products Business.
The Specialty team had recently adopted a new ERP system, and were having serious issues with its implementation. It seemed like the technology was managing the team rather than the other way around. Experience had taught Gary that empowering his team would be the only way to long-lasting change and success. He set out on a mission to collaborate with the right partners to create enhancements and improvements in the systems. Pressures were high and hurdles came thick and fast but the team kept their cool and worked hard towards higher productivity. Finding solutions that created positive impacts for customers and internal stakeholders alike bought a fresh enthusiasm to all on the project.
A strong leader knows that issues don’t go away in the long run without addressing them.
