You’ve probably heard the old expression, “It takes all kinds”. Well in order to effectively lead teams, you’ve got to understand what it takes to lead all kinds. In this presentation you’ll learn what the personality traits of your team members, as well as the team leader, has on the effectiveness of the team.
Our Speaker will be Mike Babineaux.
Mike was the first Buyer Federal Express hired when it started operations in Memphis in 1973. Beginning with the purchasing of aviation parts and supplies and moving on to high-level negotiations for the company's major acquisitions, Mike had his hand in most of FedEx’s supply management over his 30 year career.
In 1983 Mike earned his Certified Purchasing Manager (C.P.M.) designation and in 1996 was awarded the Accredited Purchasing Practitioner (A.P.P.) accreditation from the National Association of Purchasing Management (now the Institute for Supply Management). He received lifetime certification of both in 1993 and most recently was awarded the Certified Professional in Supply Management (CPSM).
Mike has guest lectured at universities and has been guest speaker at supply management and other professional association meetings as well as the ISM and PMAC International Purchasing Conferences. At the 88th ISM International Conference Mike was awarded the prestigious Education/Learning Person of the Year for his outstanding achievement and dedicated service to the Institute for Supply Management.
Without a doubt Mike has earned his place in the history of FedEx and is continuing to provide FedEx and other organizations from all over the world with innovative and advanced supply management theories, practices and precepts through his own firm, Babineaux Education, Services and Training, Inc.
