The Skills, Competencies and Experiences portion of the job announcement includes desired traits based on LSN’s four core values: Customer-centricity, Innovation, Knowledge and Sustainability.

Customer Centricity is the mindset used during the process of decision making to consider the effect or possible outcome a decision may have on customers. This value focuses on the targeted customer, understanding how a customer thinks, how they feel, why they make certain purchases and the overall need of the customer to create a long-term relationship.

Part of the innovation process is adaptability in a changing environment. (Indeed Editorial Team, 2021, para 3).

When selecting a candidate, LSN aims to have qualified leadership. While previous industry specific experience is preferred, it is not required. LSN is seeking a candidate who will be an effective leader, and able to manage several aspects of this job.
It is essential that LSN hires experiences warehouse management to fill the Las Vegas, NV and Miami, FL management positions. Leadership is an ever-changing crisis that consistently evolves throughout modern-day organizations. It is important to observe and adapt to different leadership traits as organizations develop throughout time to alleviate discrepancies and failures among employees and the organization. Experienced leaders often possess effective leadership traits that will increase the employee moral that the organization is currently lacking and the future success of the business. Leaders who are driven to achieve organizational goals have a relative high ambition for accomplishment (Kirkpatrick & Locke, 1991). While it is important for leaders to have passion for the success of the organizations, it is more so important for leaders to achieve success through transformational leadership styles. This leadership theory encompasses empowerment between leader-employee relationships through motivation, influence and inspiration (Aldrin & Gayatri, 2014).
