Leadership is such an important topic when is comes to attracting talent and growing your company whether it be in the engineering & manufacturing sector or not.  This is a great article written on LinkedIn by Mack Story on leadership.  In manufacturing recruitment, putting the right type of leader into a business is crucial.  Today at JP Recruitment, every position we fill has an aspect of lean manufacturing/process improvement/continuous improvement.  If we didn’t focus our searches on the traits of a secure leader, these people would not be able to go in and have the positive impact we expect on those manufacturing companies.  The main points in Mack’s article are:

  1. Delegation
  2. Decision Making
  3. Trust
  4. Teamwork
  5. Thinking
  6. Belief
  7. Support
  8. Credit
  9. Control
  10. Process

Are you looking for these leadership traits for people on your team?  Do you think there are other leadership traits that have been left out when it comes to being a secure leader?  In general, where do people need to improve in the manufacturing workplace right now?
