Living As A Leader Partners with The Association for Manufacturing Excellence


BROOKFIELD, WI (March 12, 2018): Living As A Leader® is pleased to announce its exclusive sponsorship with The Association for Manufacturing Excellence (AME) in the launch of the new AME Emerging Leaders program, a leadership development initiative to enable the next generation of lean leaders.


The AME Emerging Leaders program provides a platform for lean practitioners to participate in problem-solving work groups, network with peers, and serve the profession in a leadership capacity.  Emerging Leaders will have the opportunity to enroll in the Living As A Leader eLearning Leadership Development Series, a new product being offered by Living As A Leader to support the development of individual leaders (


Living As A Leader and AME share common goals when it comes to developing leaders in manufacturing and industrial environments. AME is the premier organization for the exchange of knowledge in enterprise excellence. Members come together to explore lean thinking and other enterprise improvement methods, exchange best practices and network in order to advance their careers and improve the competitiveness and overall value of their organizations.


“Our relationship with AME provides us the opportunity to reach a larger audience of emerging leaders and to support their development earlier in their professional careers.  We have more and more organizations asking for development options for this audience,” said Aleta Norris, principal at Living As A Leader.


AME invites rising leaders inside the AME member community with fewer than five years of experience working in a leadership or a non-leadership professional role to apply. AME also invites corporate members to recognize and sponsor emerging leaders within their organizations. The participant’s sponsorship fee will cover a complimentary admission to the AME International Conference, a free leadership clinic at the conference sponsored by Living As A Leader, access to AME’s private online learning and networking communities, and more.

The AME Emerging Leaders program will culminate at the AME International Conference on Oct. 29 – Nov. 1, in San Diego, Calif. The AME International Conference is expected to attract more than 1,800 continuous improvement professionals. For more information visit
