Liebherr is Announced as Winner of the 2019 Global Leadership Award by Crestcom International

Crestcom International announces winner of the prestigious Global Leadership Growth Award: Liebherr

Crestcom’s Global Leadership Growth Award is given to just one company or organization each year that demonstrates an extraordinary commitment to talent and leadership development. The culture of integrity, passion, excellence, innovation and continued growth present at every level of the Liebherr organization set them apart from the competitive selection process as a clear winner for this year’s award. Crestcom's leadership experts Mark and Patti Hawkins from Excelerate LLC in Virginia have built a relationship with Liebherr's team for the past two years.

Liebherr’s commitment to developing their team is truly inspirational,” says Tammy Berberick, president and CEO of Crestcom, an international leadership development organization. “I am honored to name Liebherr and the team as the winner of this year’s Global Leadership Growth Award.”

Vicki Wishon, Liebherr's HR manager, explained why she chose Crestcom. “The 12-month format was a good fit for us. It breaks the learning into bite-size pieces and allows a supervisor or manager to learn new concepts, have 30 days to put it to work and then have a follow up. The subject matter changes over time and benefits people in that group or people with aspirations to be [in that group], and even experienced managers and leaders find good takeaways from the program.”

Liebherr has accomplished an incredible level of growth through their investment in developing their leadership team using Crestcom’s internationally renowned Bullet Proof® Manager training program, a 12-month leadership development course. Within the last two years, Liebherr has enrolled 160 participants in Virginia, Texas, Michigan, Florida and California. Using the leadership skills they developed through Bullet Proof® Manager training, Liebherr managers have led their team to become more productive and effective in driving real business results.
