For some individuals it may mean reaching a top leadership position at a particular company, perhaps serving as a director or vice president of loss prevention/asset protection. For others, it may involve gaining experience in multiple professional fields in order to establish a unique and versatile role that capitalizes on all of our various skill sets. Some aspire to be the very best at a particular skill or discipline, building a base of knowledge and expertise that sets us apart from the rest. There are those that strive to leave a professional legacy, leaving a lasting mark on the present and future of the loss prevention industry.

We need to fashion and follow a professional development plan that leads us forward and builds our future.
