John Passante, a legacy automotive aftermarket Human Resource leader, has worked for some of the biggest names in our industry including Monroe/Tenneco, Delphi, Moog and Car Quest.
Passante wrote a book called The Human Side (High-Touch Leadership in a High-Tech World), in which he shares great leadership stories about Larry McCurdy, Hubert (Hub) Moog, John Collins, John Goerlich and Warren Ellis.
Passante discusses the stories shared in the book — stories that many in the aftermarket may have never heard, all in the name of great leadership — during the newest episode of Remarkable Results Radio, a premier automotive podcast.
Passante connects these legacy leaders to points in his book; among them, having great character in a leader, the extreme value of being a great listener, why a positive attitude is important and the strength of mentoring.
There is much to learn about the leadership qualities that these aftermarket professionals brought to our industry. Their legacies live on through their stories as told by Passante.
