Follow the Leaders

JAN BOTTIGLIERI
jbottiglieri@tappi.org

As children, I'm sure most of us played the
game "Follow the Leader," tramping around the yard
(or skipping, jumping, or climbing as the "leader" saw
fit) and hoping that the kid in charge didn't march
us all into a puddle just for fun. Ah, for those simpler times when the worst that could happen from
following a bad leader was a little rain in our shoes.
In our professional lives, the stakes are higher.
True leaders don't merely shout "follow me!" and
charge forward. They require strategy, focus, and
vision. They need a deep understanding of their
products, markets, clients, and communities. And
above all, they must be able to offer people a reason
to follow them-not only by answering the question, "What's in it for me?" but by encouraging the
question, "What's in it for everyone?"
This issue of Paper360° is all about leadership.
We start with a suite of articles looking at some of
the management challenges facing our industry
today. The two stacks in the image on page 12 may
look almost identical, but to me they starkly illustrate the "higher stakes" our industry faces: One
is attached to a thriving mill, the other to a mill
that's been closed for years. In addition, our annual
TAPPI/PIMA Awards feature introduces 30 industry professionals whose contributions have truly
made a difference to the growth of their companies,
to our industry's scientific advancement, and to the
professional lives of countless colleagues and peers.

These men and women offer examples of leadership
that I am proud to share with readers.
We will also meet Cheung Yan, chairwoman of
Nine Dragons Papers and founder of American
Chung Nam LLC. She is also RISI's Asian CEO
of the Year, and one of China's most successful
entrepreneurs-and in this in-depth interview,
she shares the leadership philosophies that helped
her achieve her impressive success. We'll then visit
Stora Enso's Varkaus, Finland, mill and learn how
management's investment in transforming the mill
paid off. I'm excited to share an article about the
TAPPISAFE program, which shows that organizations can take a leadership position on important
issues like worker safety. Even maintenance expert
Jay Shellogg offers tips for working with operations
managers in Part 2 of his excellent article on redefining mechanical failure.
As I've collected, edited, read, and re-read the
articles in this issue, I've noticed that true professional leadership doesn't look much like the children's game. It's not about getting others to fall into
lockstep behind you; it's about providing an example
that inspires and motivates everyone to do their
best. Often, it requires the courage to do things differently, and the confidence to reach out to others.
I hope every reader finds content here that helps
connect them with their own leadership potential.
As always, I'd love to hear your thoughts.
