Not Quite … Leadership Coaching

This week’s Issue | 02/03/2020

If you believe the numbers … then typically for every person you employ there are 10 people within your supply chain relying on your leadership skills.  Now the challenge is whether you decide to pursue an adversarial un-trusting relationship with your supply chain or one of collaboration.  But in essence both require audits to insure that value-add has been optimized throughout the Value Stream.
