Do you plan on becoming a successful manager in the supply chain discipline? If so, you’re going to need to have leadership skills. Without leadership skills, you’re going to have a tough time advancing in the supply chain discipline, especially to positions that require leadership.
These are three strengths that every leader must have. But in order to have all three of these strengths – or to develop them – you need to have a plan. For example, if you are offered a promotion, you need to know exactly where that promotion could fit within your long term plan. If your plan is to stick with the same company with the goal of becoming a successful manager in the supply chain discipline there, you’ll turn it down. If it doesn’t matter where you achieve this goal, you’ll take it. If you have no plan whatsoever, you’re going to end up being indecisive, which could result in the wrong decision. As a leader, you can’t be indecisive.
