Developing Leaders in the Manufacturing Industry

Develop Your Leadership Skills and Take Your Manufacturing Business to the Next Level

Developing Leaders in the Manufacturing IndustryAre you ready to tackle the challenges facing the manufacturing industry head-on? The energy crisis, ongoing labour shortages, and economic difficulties demand strong leadership and management skills. At Call of the Wild, we understand the evolving needs of the manufacturing sector, and we’re here to empower you with the necessary leadership skills to succeed.

According to a recent report by Make UK, future leaders in manufacturing must possess better motivational and communication skills. They should have the ability to connect with employees on a deeper level and take a holistic view of the business. As the leading specialists in leadership and development, we have collaborated with top manufacturers to create a comprehensive tailored leadership programme exclusively designed for the manufacturing industry.

Our programme is strategically designed to develop your employees’ skills, enabling them to motivate and inspire their teams, make better long-term decisions, and drive transformative change within your organisation. By partnering with us, you can equip your leaders with the tools they need to navigate the dynamic landscape of the manufacturing industry.

Why is leadership development crucial in the manufacturing industry? As the industry evolves, the skills required to lead and manage teams effectively change as well. Continually developing your leadership skills is not only essential to stay ahead of the game but also to keep your team engaged and motivated. Effective manufacturing leaders inspire their team members through clear communication, making tough decisions, and adapting quickly to changes. By investing in your leadership skills, you can create a positive work environment that fosters innovation, creativity, and collaboration.

leadership development in manufacturingThe Make UK and Rockwell study of over 200 senior executives in manufacturing revealed some eye-opening statistics:

  • 8 out of 10 manufacturers acknowledged a shortage of management skills in the industry.
  • Effective leaders were recognised as critical in adopting new technologies or green practices.
  • Many manufacturers preferred holding onto underperforming managers rather than having vacancies.

Additionally, 67% of manufacturers agreed that future leaders are developed within the business over time. While this approach offers advantages, it often results in managers being promoted without the necessary training to reach their full potential.

Instead, we build bespoke solutions that blend our specialised leadership development methodology with your specific needs.
