Leadership Development

Lead Yourself

The Lead Yourself program is a carefully crafted initiative tailored for individuals seeking to make an investment in their personal growth and development at Butler Machinery Company. In the realm of career advancement, the term “leadership” is frequently encountered. It is important to highlight that “leadership” is not the same as “management.” Being a leader goes beyond the usual levels of authority at Butler, and this program is designed to help each person look inside themselves and find areas where they can grow personally. As participants progress through the program, they will encounter three fundamental categories: Butler Mission & Values, Ownership & Character, and Communication & Trust. By engaging in online coursework, exploring recommended books and podcasts, and receiving guidance from a dedicated mentor or leader, participants will acquire the skills necessary to take deliberate strides towards self-leadership and effectively influence others.


The Fundamentals of Butler Leadership has been specifically designed and tailored to our business to develop strong and consistent leaders. Butler understands that leadership is much more than a position or job title—it’s about creating positive transformations throughout our organization.

During this program, you will discover practical, engaging, and relevant techniques that give leaders the tools needed to elevate their effectiveness and build relationships. We have learned that leaders who intentionally nurture an environment of honesty, mutual trust, and respect tend to drive stronger performance, exceptional customer service—and ultimately—improved business results. This coursework will inspire and empower each person to create a framework of effective and sustainable leadership practices.

The duration of this program is five months, with one week dedicated to each month. Each week focuses on a distinct topic aimed at developing the skills and knowledge required for leadership.


Butler’s Mentorship Training program is designed specifically for individuals currently employed at Butler who possess remarkable leadership potential. The primary role of a mentor at Butler Machinery is to train and acclimate new team members to our culture and working environment.  This training is an excellent opportunity for those eager to enhance their skills and prepare themselves for a mentorship role within their respective teams.
