Playing Small Moment

When Lee worked and lived in LA, she didn’t know anyone. She worked in a place that was demeaning. Though she won many awards through them, the people she worked for diminished a lot of her work. Lee saw a lot of opportunities but everything was being second guessed.

The Wake Up Call

Her most recent wake up call was when Lee as sick a few years ago and kept working through it to the point she needed surgery.  During her time off, she trusted her team to handle everything.  After 3 weeks, she was feeling better but when she saw herself in the mirror, it became evident that she was a mess!  She realized then that she had to rearrange her life.

Style of Leadership

Lee would describe her leadership style as enthusiastically encouraging. She doesn’t feel the need to check everyone’s work; she trusts the people she hires. Her purpose is to help good people do great things.

What Are You Excited About?

Lee is excited about her book, Millennials in Management.

Leadership Practice

Taking care of herself makes her a better leader.  Lee makes sure to move around, stay hydrated and get enough sleep.
