Inspired: Jorge del Cid

Throughout Barry-Wehmiller, there are many team members who have been with us a long time—20-, 25-, 30+ years. We’re proud of that. It says something about who you are as an organization when people choose to stay by your side, working together toward the shared goals.

Jorge del Cid is one of those team members. Jorge is a Director of Aftermarket for our BW Integrated Systems division. He’s been with us for 25 years. He was with us when we introduced the principles of Truly Human Leadership which jumpstarted our cultural transformation. Like many of our team members, learning to lead people in a non-traditional way did not come naturally to Jorge. As he shares, he would have preferred to just “tell them what to do.”

But he didn’t. Instead, he trusted. He listened. He cared. Instead of being a manager to those in his span of care, he was a leader. When you do that, amazing things are possible.

In this episode of our Truly Human Leadership: INSPIRED series, Jorge talks about his own transformation.

We’re inspired by our people every day. We hope you will be too.

Truly Human Leadership is found throughout Barry-Wehmiller Companies, where Bob Chapman is Chairman and CEO. A $3+ billion global capital equipment and engineering consulting firm, Barry-Wehmiller’s 12,000 team members are united around a common belief: we can use the power of business to build a better world. Chapman explores that idea in his Wall Street Journal best-selling book, Everybody Matters: The Extraordinary Power of Caring For Your People Like Family, available from Penguin Random House.
