"Flexibility and Adaptability."
Over 23 years in the Army I would say that just being flexible to change and adaptable to new surroundings as well as the changes that continue to evolve in todays military is pertinent.

"Structure."
Not everything is going to be structured for you on how to operate.

Logistics Manager in Mineola:
"Coordinate, prioritize, lead, organize and care."
Prioritize, coordinate, quality over quantity (sometimes) and efficient. Organization is essential to success. As a logistics manager you have to manage people and their personalities sometimes as much as the product itself. You have to know when to push and when to coddle. Stressing team achievement over individual acclaim resonates with coworkers. Be a leader by showing the way and not by telling the way. Action speaks louder than words and allocation of duties makes all involved in the process feel a sense of importance and self-worth. If you have to speak to someone about their individual performance pull them aside and never verbally chastise an employee in front of a group. Think before you act while always keeping the next day in mind.

Be a leader - build a strong team whose members are interchangeable and can do ALL the work. Be transparent and honest with your group. Understand the strengths and weakness of all members and yourself.
