When asked about how leadership contributes to the success of the company, Hiten mentions: Leadership to run and grow the company over a sustained time frame requires a mix of qualities including understanding customer needs, aligning team members to focus on those customer needs and enabling operations and processes to be formed to perform functions in a consistent fashion. Key qualities required to grow a global supply chain business are:

  • Sensitivity and understanding of global cultures.
  • Ability to assess and take calculated risks
  • Willingness and open to failures while trying to create solutions
  • Listening to the customer and to your people. Most people have acute sense of what needs to be done. A leader’s job is to create an environment where they feel empowered and inspired to do their very best
