Can Convis Turn Dana Around?

2 — Dana CEO, veteran of Toyota, hailed as mentor

Here's another nice article that gives an overview of the leadership style of Gary Convis, a long-time Toyota exec who is now CEO of parts maker Dana.

IF DANA Holding Corp.'s new chief executive officer has any words of wisdom that he tries to impart to those younger than his 65 years, Gary Convis tells them this: “Manage as if you have no power.”

It was advice that the longtime Toyota Motor Corp. manufacturing executive received from his management mentor many years ago.

I could quote and comment until the cows come home — but I'll just invite you to click on the article and take a look.

We'd all be better off if we had more leaders like Gary Convis.

    Can we get Mr. Convis to come run a hospital if it doesn’t work out at Dana????

    Maybe to some degree but he can never duplicate the Toyota culture which is really what makes Toyota so amazing.
