The Barry-Wehmiller Leadership Institute story.

We believe that where we work can be the most powerful force for good in our societies today.

In order to bring that world to life, the Barry-Wehmiller Leadership Institute (BWLI) partners with organizations to deliver customized training and events, assessments, consulting services – and everything in between. We build on and transfer the learnings of our parent company, Barry-Wehmiller, to yours. Barry-Wehmiller is a private company that was started in 1885. Today the organization is comprised of over 100 acquisitions and 12,000 team members around the world in manufacturing, engineering and IT consulting, and professional services.  We design and build the machines that make most of the products you use every day. And we’ve been very successful at it. Since our first acquisition in 1987, Barry-Wehmiller’s annual revenue has increased 18%. As a result of the attention from external organizations on how we build and develop culture for business and people success, and based on our overriding purpose of “measuring success by the way we touch the lives of people,” we formed BWLI.
