If I had to eat one thing for the rest of my life, what would it be?
Either Mexican food or Japanese food. A good carne asada burrito or sushi and I'm set!
What did you do before this?
I did a little bit of everything! Most recently I worked in advertising and marketing for small/medium sized businesses as well as national/international companies. Before that I did everything from working in sales for a university, Shift Supervisor at Starbucks, and Blockbuster video (which is now a dated thing to say).
Experience you’ve had the lends itself to leadership coaching well?
First, I’m a big Dave Ramsey fan and have spent a lot of time learning how our organization implements leadership. I’m also naturally inquisitive and outgoing, and that helps when it comes to digging into conversations with people and asking questions. Mainly though, through previous work experience, I got a great deal of insight in the world of small business ownership. That experience helped me to understand on an emotional level what business owners deal with each day, and from that perspective I can help to encourage others and speak to their pain points in leadership.
Why do you love being a Leadership Coach?
Building relationships. People matter, and being able to be a voice of encouragement and a sounding board is a privilege. Knowing that business owners can feel lonely in the position they hold, it’s fun to step into the fun and not-so-fun parts of growth and be able to talk through it.
Favorite coaching conversation to have? Why?
Culture and Communication. I feel that most conversations about business can be tied back to building a strong culture and effective communication from the leader. For example, focusing on the "Who are we?” of culture can help in the hiring process, it can help with when and how to have difficult conversations, and can even help with how you handle your finances. If you win at culture and communication you can win at business.
Favorite EntreLeadership event? Why?
EntreLeadership Master Series. It’s one of our most rubber-meets-the-road events that we offer. Master Series takes a deep dive into how we run our business and helps businesses identify how to apply it to their own. Plus we do this event at our offices so being able to entertain guests on our turf and show them a good time is fun.
