Our leadership model provides a road map of our leadership process.
At the core of the process are the business objectives. This is to emphasize that everything you do as a company should contribute to the accomplishments of your business objectives. Business objectives need to be identified at each level and within each unit of the company. This includes, maintenance, operations, safety, environmental, human relations, reliability, and every other department or entity within the company. This model can be used and analyzed whenever you are making decisions and directing activities that lead to the accomplishment of the business objectives.
