Playing Small Moment

Shelli was a proven leader of technical teams. When she felt it was time for her to move up and into a different role, she enlisted the help of a leader who turned out not having the clout she thought he had. It took a couple of years before she decided to bypass him and get the word out on her own.

The Wake Up Call

One day it dawned on Shelli that she was starting to resent having to go to work. She was finding more and more fulfillment in her community and discovering joy outside of her career. She loved her job until she didn’t.

Style of Leadership

Shelli has the unique ability to stack a team. She attracted the best candidates because of her communication strategies and her willingness to shine a spotlight on those deserving of the attention.

Current Business Challenge

Shelli is learning things happen on divine time and not on Shelli time. She is learning to release the significance on the outcome and appreciating that things will happen when they are supposed to happen. Shelli is also finding it challenging to value her ability and formulate a price for her services.

What Are You Excited About?

Shelli is excited about recording her live sessions and launching her encouragement cards. Her cards are an easy, quick delightful way to let someone know people are noticing what “she” is accomplishing.

Your Support System

Shelli’s support system includes an artist, a web developer and the women of her Sheconnex community.

Leadership Practice

She starts every day with a podcast for motivation and keeps key people in her Fab 5.
