Val Ries, Learning From Leadership Mistakes as Sorority President
Joining me for Episode #25 of the “My Favorite Mistake” podcast is Val Ries, a leadership trainer, an executive coach and a “management muse.” She's a nurse with an MBA and her firm is called Executive Muse.
Val has a book due out in April 2021 called Chief Inspiration Officer, so I'm looking forward to that. You can get the first chapter now through her website.
Today, Val shares her “favorite mistake” about her first leadership role, as president of her sorority. Why does she reflect and say, “I didn't know what I was doing”? What did Val learn from this experience and how has it helped her in her career and in her work with others? She also talks about her “CRAVE” leadership model — Connection, Reliability, Appreciation, Valued, and Effective (communication).
A transcript follows lower on this page.
