In This Episode:
In this 2nd episode of our podcast series on Supply Chain Talent Building and Engagement, we speak with Jennifer Longnion, a highly experienced executive and organizational development professional, who is currently Founder and “Chief Organization Officer” of See and Free Consulting. Jenn begins by talking about her career journey with companies such as Best Buy, Motorola, Coca-Cola, and Dollar Shave Club. Working at these prominent brands helped her to learn how to best view and apply organizational development within supply chain. Also learn how to deal with transformation and change, plus how HR can build trust and be a valued partner to supply chain leaders. We even get lessons on how to approach workforce planning to hire and develop people, giving them both the tools to succeed and the freedom to grow, try, and fail now and then to advance careers and business success. The conversation closes with a focus on accountability and measures, plus the best advice Jenn has for supply chain professionals.
Who is Jennifer Longnion?
An unorthodox executive, Jenn leverages her 28 years of expertise to help build and scale organizational capabilities so organizations may accelerate their growth. Her clients have anointed her “The Org Whisperer” for her ability to walk into any org – at any stage – and quickly assess what’s happening, what’s needed, then figure out how to galvanize everyone to achieve their goals. In her own words, she sees and frees what’s possible – even when it is seemingly impossible. Jenn spent most of her career as an Organization Development leader in multiple organizations from academia to large corporations, including Best Buy, Motorola, and The Coca-Cola Company. In the last several years, she joined unicorn fast-growth companies, first Dollar Shave Club, Inc as COO and as Chief Impact Officer at Silicon-Valley based Flexport, Inc.
