Thomas, Diana
Master of Leadership Development
The recent economic downturn and resulting recession has caused companies to look for opportunities to mitigate the financial deficits and survive. Many industries have had to find ways to do more with less. The pharmaceutical industry, like others, has downsized their work force and Cook Pharmica has recently followed this trend. One negative result of this is that employees are asked to fill positions for which they do not have the proper training or skills. The leadership of any company is of such critical importance in driving towards its mission and developing its culture, it should not be left to chance. It is proposed that an in-house leadership development program be initiated which will address the needs of Cook Pharmica in developing a competent and committed work force and indoctrinating the leadership culture to that of its founder, Bill Cook.
