Pete Luongo

Pete Luongo retired as President and CEO of The Berry Company in August of 2003. His career at Berry spanned more than 33 years. During his last nine years with the company, Peter was instrumental in guiding Berry through a period of record sales growth, numerous contract acquisitions and the perpetuation of the nearly 100 year old company as an industry leader and a “great place to work.”

While Peter’s career was dedicated to finding a better way, no initiative was more profound or had a greater impact than his development of “The Leadership Pledge” which was subsequently implemented as the operating philosophy inside The Berry Company in 1994 and remains there today.

Since retirement Pete Luongo has devoted himself to giving back through his book, “10 Truths About Leadership…..It’s Not Just About Winning”, speaking engagements, board memberships and by serving as executive director of Center for Leadership and Executive Development at the University of Dayton where he also serves as an adjunct professor teaching leadership at both the undergraduate and graduate level and serves of the University’s Board of Trustees.

Peter has been fortunate to work with 100+ plus companies, collegiate athletic programs and numerous organizations sharing his behavior driven model “The Leadership Pledge” that focuses on people, support, expectations, feedback, and accountability. The ten truths are life’s lessons that help each of us understand that our lives will be valued by our willingness to make a difference in other people’s lives. Coaching and inspiring leadership at all organizational levels is Pete’s passion: his message will move and inspire you.

10 Truths About Leadership

Based on his book of the same name, The Ten Truths are Peter Luongo's solutions to problems we face every day regardless of our station in life, personally or professionally. The Ten Truths are based on finding more effective ways of succeeding as a behavior-driven organization and include "Past performance predicts future behavior," "Rules are for the weak and uncompromised standards of excellence are for the strong" and "Accept yourself as you exist, accept others as they exist, and in the context of the similarities and differences, finding more effective ways of succeeding as a behavior-driven organization."

A Journey of Obstacles, A Destination of Truths

Company leaders can cite hundreds of reasons why they aren't successful. From a weak economy to stiff competition, everyone has an excuse. In this lecture, Peter Luongo gives an answer about a behavior-driven model titled "Our Management Creed," which focuses on great people, a commitment to support them, well-defined expectations, effective feedback and acceptance of total accountability for individual performance.
