Cultivating the Next Generation of Leaders

The Leadership Discovery Course was developed by Caterpillar’s Young Professionals Employee Resource Group to provide Caterpillar employees around the world the opportunity to develop as leaders and seek leadership opportunities in their current and subsequent roles. This focus on developing leaders and enhancing their abilities resulted in the initiative becoming a finalist for the 2019 Caterpillar’s Excellence Award for Diversity & Inclusion. 

Specific course topics and stories are used to develop integrity, excellence, teamwork, commitment and sustainability in each participant. Since completing the course, many participants have taken on new leadership roles and developed not only professionally, but personally.

Course participant Sam Miller, of Cat Financial in Nashville, said, "An important part of the Leadership Discovery Course for me was self-discovery. The Strengths Finder assessment helped me understand what made me different from other people and what roles and opportunities might be right for me going forward."
