Leadership Development Done the BNSF Way
Shortly after the turn of the century, under the leadership of CEO Matt Rose, BNSF Railway initiated a comprehensive leadership development program. Among other things, it provided exceptional mentoring experiences for emerging leaders across the company.
At the heart of this effort was what BNSF calls its Leadership Model. The model centers on five principles:
Lead More, Manage Less
Cast a Compelling Vision
Communicate, Communicate, Communicate
Model the Way
Develop Your People
Over the past two decades BNSF has expanded and enhanced the elements of its leadership development system. But the Leadership Model remains at the core of the system. Leaders in any organization would profit from embracing the model's five principles.
This podcast examines these principles and how they interrelate. It also looks at how BNSF implemented the Leadership Model so that it became embedded in the corporate culture.
