|Michael C. Hyter is President and Managing Partner of Global Novations. Global Novations was formed when industry leaders Novations Group, Inc. and Global Lead joined forces. Prior to his position with Global Novations, Hyter was President and Chief Executive Officer of Novations Group from 2006–2010.|
Mr. Hyter's earlier experience includes a wide range of human resources and leadership positions at the Dayton Hudson Corporation. In 1992, he became vice president of Community, Government Affairs and Public Relations for sixty-three Dayton's, Hudson's, and Marshall Field's stores.
He marks his participation in a leadership development program delivered by J. Howard & Associates as a turning point in his professional development. Exposure to the Efficacy principles, he attests, was paramount to his career acceleration. "That event made me understand more fully that development is a learnable process and how to be responsible for taking on incremental challenges and risks in my own career."
He was so impacted by the Efficacy principles that in 1996 Mr. Hyter joined J. Howard & Associates. He was attracted to the organization because of its mission of developing talent and helping organizations increase the yield of their employees. In 1999, he was promoted to a managing director role and in 2001 was named President & CEO of J. Howard & Associates. Mr. Hyter went on to become President and COO of Novations Group (the parent company of J. Howard & Associates) and in 2006 became its President and CEO.
Throughout his career, Mr. Hyter's work with executives in Fortune 1000 companies has resulted in organization-wide initiatives that have enhanced the business objectives of those organizations. He has also helped them expand that work into their subsidiaries in Europe and Latin America. This work has been enhanced by the belief that one of the most effective ways to impact an organization's bottom line is by growing and developing the talent within the organization.
Mr. Hyter has published articles in 2004 Handbook of Business Strategy, Director's Monthly, Profiles in Diversity Journal, and Inc. He is also a regular contributer to the Global Novations blog.
His book, The Power of Inclusion: Unlock the Potential and Productivity of Your Workforce, co-authored with Judith Turnock, was published by Wiley in 2006. Mr. Hyter is also the author of The Power of Choice: Embracing Efficacy to Drive Your Career, published in 2011.
Mr. Hyter serves on the board of the Executive Leadership Council (ELC) and the Executive Leadership Foundation (ELF), and previously served on the board of the Citi Performing Arts Center (formerly the Wang Center) in Boston.
