Click the play button below to listen to the podcast episode.
Ellen Miller grew up in rural Maine and is a leadership coach and operational executive for TRC Companies and Former Vice President of AVANGRID. She understands the challenges of being a pioneer and breaking trail in a non-traditional role. As a leader, she has experienced digging in, charging ahead, and rising above both personally and professionally. She is curating on Instagram, “Illuminating: Women In The Shadows”, to highlight and honor women pioneers in the past to inspire and empower the women pioneers of today.
In this episode Ellen and I discuss…
- Why all women are pioneers, whether a business owner or an employee forging new paths for women to succeed. We have to blaze trails and make inroads that require us to engage and motivate people all around us.
- Why starting with vision, mission, and values sounds cliche but is an absolute must if you want to avoid the common pitfalls involved in leading a team.
- How Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) can be used to motivate your team and reduce stress.
- Why it is crucial to be able to redefine success, especially when you are in a crisis, so you and those around you can focus on what’s important.
