If our people don’t grow and progress, Kohler doesn’t grow and progress; it’s as simple as that. Because our future depends on that development, we work hard to foster it whenever and wherever we can.
Mentoring and Coaching
We partner with the Center for Creative Leadership to customize our own programs for training strong, visionary leaders.
Kohler Leadership Forum (KLF)
The KLF targets our most promising and passionate associates and pairs them with coaches and mentors who can help shape their growth and advancement.
Comprehensive Leadership Development Curriculum
Our ground-breaking courses offer associates the knowledge and tools to effectively manage others and to develop their own potential.
Targeted Development and Continuous Learning
We like the saying “You rest, you rust.” We believe in lifelong learning – in taking joy and pride in always increasing your knowledge and understanding. The Kohler Learning Academy is world-renowned and draws thousands of associates to its classrooms and online courses every year. We have also partnered with many accredited institutions so that associates who want to further their education and career may attend additional educational programs.
Because we are always looking forward, we are continually searching for and preparing those people who will lead us tomorrow. We put a lot of thought and work into finding and developing people not only for the roles they have, but for the roles they will have. Our thorough and thoughtful succession planning ensures that vacancies are filled quickly by people who are well-prepared for the job. We believe it also encourages people to think big about their own careers; to plan and prepare for their own dream jobs.
