LMC dealer members recently participated in a Leadership Excellence Masterclass at Northwestern University’s Kellogg School of Management

The executive-level program is designed for leaders who want to excel in today's business landscape. Held from April 16-19, the program offered LMC’s dealer member participants an opportunity to learn from Kellogg professors and industry experts while gaining insight and tools.

Responding to the ever-changing business environment, this Leadership Excellence Masterclass is carefully curated to provide dealers with the latest research, transformational practices, and innovative solutions to address the challenges of today's complex and uncertain business landscape, the Wayne, Pennsylvania-based building materials and forest products buying group said.

According to LMC, the program is designed for owners, senior managers, and next-gen leaders who are seeking to expand their leadership thinking and enhance their capabilities to drive organizational success. 

Participants had the opportunity to engage in deep-dive sessions on a wide range of topics, including  human-centered innovation, customer experience innovation, leading in uncertain times, leadership in  the era of 5G, and “getting good at getting great.”

“LMC's educational offerings have always been strong, but the partnership with the Kellogg School is next level,” said Vince Tague III from Philadelpia-based Tague  Lumber. “The professors are engaging, the topics are relevant, and the view of Lake Michigan is not bad either. The course gave me a lot to bring back to my company.”

Along with in-depth sessions, participants had the opportunity to network and learn from their peers in a collaborative and supportive environment, allowing for rich discussions and exchange of ideas, according to LMC.

"We are excited to offer this unique opportunity for leaders to enhance their skills and develop new strategies," said Paul Ryan, LMC president and CEO. "Participants will leave with actionable ideas  they can implement in their business to improve customer satisfaction and improve revenues." 

This is the seventh year LMC has offered Leadership Excellence Masterclasses designed specifically for LMC Dealers with diverse backgrounds who are looking to elevate their leadership capabilities and drive positive change in their organizations.

Founded in 1935, LMC’s membership includes more than 1,400 dealer locations in the United States and the Bahamas.
