Many definitions of leadership have been written and used, but the one cited most often at Rockwell Collins is: a leader is someone you will follow to a place you would otherwise not go.
With this definition in mind, we believe leadership goes beyond a formal title. It's an expectation of all employees in our organization. Whether they demonstrate leadership as an individual contributor or as an executive, being able to effectively lead others to a destination is critical to our company’s success.
We have a comprehensive Leadership Roadmap to help leaders develop at our company. Role maps for each level of leadership identify what developmental activities are required and/or available to help employees in their personal leadership journey.
Through our corporate Rockwell Collins University, employees can take advantage of leadership development programs such as leadership assessments, training and development, coaching and mentoring, networking, and formal education. Because each level of leadership requires a unique set of skills and abilities, we provide our leaders with a breadth of opportunities for development.
The power of leadership at Rockwell Collins will continue to pave a path toward continued success.
