Featuring Kim D. Moore, Ed.D. Certified Coach, Speaker & Trainer The John Maxwell Team
Moderated by Scott W. Luton, CSCP, LSSGB EVP, APICS Atlanta
Leadership and supply chain innovation may seem unrelated to some, however, one’s leadership approach can kill innovation within the supply chain. Until recently, many companies were top-down organizations. Leadership, power, and authority were built on status, longevity, or position. However, this is no longer the case. Today, leadership is established through integrity, professional reputation, effectiveness, communication, and collaboration. During this webinar, you will learn how your leadership approach may be killing innovation in the supply chain. You will learn strategies to foster a culture of innovation and how to optimize team members for growth, collaboration, and success. Team members must feel they're an indispensable part of a supply chain, with leaders that appreciate and support them, and help them to innovate. Assuming you have hired the right team members, it’s up to you as the leader to create this type of culture. You are the leader and the innovation you seek in the supply chain must start with you!
