What Does it Take to Become an Executive?

In the past year, Alcott Global’s guests in the Leaders in Supply Chain Podcast and in the Global Summits, have shared a wealth of experience and advice, in more than 35 hours of interviews and keynotes.

The team at Alcott Global has synthesized key actions, learning, attitudes that would take the supply chain professionals into the executive positions, and included them in a 14 pages report, titled Career Advice for Supply Chain Executives.

What if a C-suite position opened up tomorrow? Are you ready for it?” – Andrew Bryant, CSP Global Expert on Leadership

Supply chain organizations are the largest people organizations in any company, thus the business influence has a great amplitude, as Sandra MacQuillan EVP and CSCO Mondelēz International shared in Episode #96.

Preparing to take up a Supply Chain Executive role, or even CEO, implies being intentional about career planning, constantly doing the homework of assessing the gaps, bridging these gaps and taking strategic actions to get to the C-suite. “People all the time spend time, energy, money on education, on knowledge, experience, and yet, they actually put their career in somebody else’s hands.” – Episode 93: Shellye Archambeau Board Director Verizon, Nordstrom, Roper Technologies, Okta

The leaders featured in the Career Advice Report shared about the essential skills, both hard and soft skills, habits triggered by Covid-19 crisis which are to be observed and avoided, the exposure and long term investments to build trust and bring into light differentiators that count in stepping into the C-suite, but which CVs will not be able to reflect.
