In this Episode:
We discuss career advancement tactics used to avoid career gridlock. Can you recognize when work might seem stale, your energy level seems to be dropping, or you’ve stopped learning? Then, what can you do about it? Your primary focus should be staying at your company, whether you are improving your current position or looking to move up or across to another position. The last resort is looking externally. Learn how to go through the process of honest self-reflection, followed by the counseling of trusted advisors, then possibly your own boss and team. You’ll learn how to deal with the typically uncomfortable, direct, honest conversation about how you or your staff is feeling about work. Learn how, as a leader, to create an environment that encourages this process to build stronger individuals and teams.
What is the Supply Chain Careers Leadership Series?
The Supply Chain Careers Leadership series expands its previous content format into a more in-depth focus on leadership development. This program is a series of 10+ episodes that are hosted by our very own supply chain executive, Chris Gaffney. These episodes explore subject matter and topics that relate to excelling as a leader in the business world, much of which Chris has gleaned as VP of Supply Chain at Coca-Cola. Familiar faces and fellow supply chain leaders, Rodney Apple and Mike Ogle chime in with their experience and knowledge, all of which can be used by supply chain leaders to develop and advance their careers.
