FINDING THEIR WAY TO THE FAST TRACK
Wall Street Journal
By JOANN S. LUBLIN
Young executives Matthew Zubiller, Kori Reed and Pam Rogers Klyn found ways to turbocharge their careers and put themselves on a fast track to senior management.
Their trick? Each took a novel approach that resulted in unexpected benefits for their employers—and new, prominent roles for themselves.
Mr. Zubiller started a high-tech health-care business for McKesson Corp. Ms. Reed persuaded ConAgra Foods Inc. CAG -0.11% to mount a companywide attack on U.S. child hunger. Ms. Klyn shaved spending quicker than expected at Whirlpool Corp. WHR +0.86% by linking cost cuts to performance reviews for 6,600 North American staffers.
They overcame multiple challenges. They secured funding, won support from the skeptical top brass and practiced diplomatic persistence. The trio’s experiences offer handy guideposts to ambitious managers everywhere.
“Solving thorny business problems creatively helps rising stars get on the screen of upper management and provides the kind of leadership development experience they need to advance,” observes Jeffrey Cohn, a leadership adviser for chief executives.
