What is your favorite leadership quote?
Ultimately leadership is not about glorious crowning acts. It’s about keeping your team focused on a goal and motivated to do their best to achieve it, especially when the stakes are high and the consequences really matter. It is about laying the groundwork for others’ success, and then standing back and letting them shine.
What leader in your life has most influenced you?
I think the one leader who influenced me the most was a previous manager I had as I was working my way up the ladder to be an office manager myself. In fact, she was the manager just prior to my current job. She always treated her employees with respect, gratitude, understanding and patience.
What is your greatest leadership skill and how did you attain it?
Leadership is all about finding ways for people to combine their efforts, their talents, their insights, their enthusiasm and their inspiration to work together. My goal is to unlock people’s potential to become better.
What leadership skill do you want to achieve and how will you attain it?
A leader needs to be able to think outside of the box and harness creative thinking. Sometimes nontraditional solutions or approaching problems in nontraditional ways, can solve an otherwise unsolvable problem.
