If you’re not already familiar with it, aspiring and current life cycle logistics leaders – including DoD Product Support Managers (PSM) -- are encouraged to take a look through DoD Instruction 1430.16, which is simply entitled “Growing Civilian Leaders.” In a nutshell, the instruction outlines DoD policy to develop and sustain “a diverse cadre of highly capable, high-performing, and results-oriented civilian leaders… to lead effectively in increasingly complex environments, ensure continuity of leadership, and maintain a learning organization that drives transformation and continuous improvement across the enterprise” and “…provide a blueprint for the deliberate development of DoD civilian leaders below the executive level.” Something we all should be cognizant of, wouldn’t you say?
