Todd Billingsley is not just a transformational leader—he is transforming what it actually means to be a leader.“Todd is a visionary and has single-handedly changed the culture around leadership development at BI,” says Rich Baron, Executive Director, Human Pharma Training & Development, Boehringer Ingelheim. “Cultures are generally created and driven from the top down. Todd has accomplished something remarkable in that he has built this and grown it from the bottom up.”When Todd took over this role, BI had two programs: “Management Development Curriculum” and “Lead.” He totally dissolved MDC and built “New Leader Development.” While managers are trained to be great at hitting numbers and benchmarks, Todd believed leaders should be something more.Todd’s work has also taken a leadership program that was 95% male dominated and made it closer to 60%-40% in favor of females. Now, his work is being applied across the organization with the animal health business in the U.S. picking up NLD, the team in Canada visiting the coaching academy, and Todd preparing to visit the global headquarters in Ingelheim to build out the program globally.###Adrian Gostick and Chester Elton have spent more than two decades helping clients around the world engage their employees on strategy, vision and values.
