leaders and peers. I believe that great leadership
qualities exist at every level of our organizations, and
we can learn from the unique strengths of many individuals. Some of my most meaningful takeaways have
come from identifying weaknesses in how I have been
managed and making a point of not repeating those
mistakes. I believe leadership is a managed outcome
and it must be worked on constantly. I am currently
mentoring three individuals in my company and always
marvel that as I teach, I also learn.
Who is the one person that you have held up as
the person which whom you would like to emulate or be like or held in high regards, and why?
There are many individuals I admire and for a
variety of reasons. What most have in common is that
they have not been afraid to be their genuine selves,
and they have exhibited strong values with behaviors
that support those values.
What three character traits do you consider
your strongest suits?
I recently took Gallup’s Strength-Finder test. My
top strengths according to the results were very accurate.
• Strategic – Looking for new and alternative ways
to proceed and defining the best way to move
• Responsibility – A commitment to stable values,
taking ownership and getting things done.
• Self-Assurance – Having an inner compass that
provides confidence in decision making.
• Communication – Making sure there is attention
given to messages that must be heard and offering
an inspirational approach to our mission and goals.
• Individualism – Celebrating the unique qualities of
each person and figuring out how people who are
different can work together.
