Future Leaders of Michelin: it opened my apetite for digitalization

In Michelin, we hire for a career, not just for a job. We’re making this promise time and time again, and we have built an internal framework to support it and turn it into a reality. One of our tools: the accelerated development program Future Leaders. It takes colleagues with no previous managerial experience and intensively trains them for a new role. Theory meets practice in this one-year program, where the participants learn project management skills and also get to test them out in practice, each person managing a cross-functional program with high impact in our organization.

We’re asked our Future Leaders about their development experience:

Geanina Muscalu, Internal Controller

The Future Leaders program helped me improve my leadership, communication, and planning skills. The fact that I worked with a team from different departments offered me the possibility to see different activities and propose simplification solutions for the way my colleagues were calculating and presenting their indicators.
The Performance Management project, which I coordinated, opened my appetite for digitalization and for the usage of Power BI application.

If you don’t exit your comfort zone, then the developing areas are shrinking considerably for you.
If you don’t accept the fact the work comes first and the rewards later, probably nothing will happen.
You can learn a lot by trying and making mistakes. Everything may not be pitch perfect from the start, but you need to be strong and to focus on the good parts from every test and trial.

Alexandra Ion, Team Leader, Finance

Overall, besides improving my project management and presentation skills, I think the biggest lessons learned from Future Leaders are that self-awareness is an essential quality for a good leader and that communication is key to get the expected results; always talk first about the needs and motivation of the key stakeholders.
