Story: Toro

Toro, the lawn equipment manufacturer, is accustomed to lawsuits, due to the inherent hazards associated with using its machinery. During the late 1980s, the company was facing major financial troubles and put Ken Melrose in place as CEO. One of his first successes was reducing the company’s cost of lawsuits by implementing a new mediation policy and invoking an important leadership trait: empathy.

Prior to Melrose’s tenure, Toro faced about 50 lawsuits every year involving serious injuries. He decided to switch to mediation to address product liability claims. This approach included sending a company representative to meet with people injured by Toro products, as well as their families. The goal was to see what went wrong, express the firm’s sympathy, and attend to the family’s needs. One result of the new mediation policy was a 95% rate of resolving the company’s claims, along with significant cost savings.

Great leaders recognize problems and do what it takes to overcome them. They are open and empathetic and let their values guide their actions.
Leadership Development

Outstanding business managers can take a potentially disastrous situation and not only prevent it from becoming worse but turn it into a positive outcome for the company. A leader uses a variety of leadership traits when taking an organization through turbulence:

●Flexibility
●Gratitude
●Learning Agility
●Empathy
●Support
●Transparency
●Compassion
●Time Management
●Communication
●Decisiveness
●Conflict resolution
●Clear vision
●Passion
●Protection
●Adaptiveness
●Understanding
●Problem-solving
●Negotiation
●Positiveness

Not all leaders possess all of these skills. While CEOs like Howard Schultz, Ken Melrose, and James Parker have natural talent and leadership abilities, most managers of this caliber recognize their weaknesses, as well as their strengths, and take advantage of opportunities to develop their areas of weakness.
