Welcome to Leadership Ladder

It’s the start of an adventure. I’ve never done this before. I don’t really know what I’m doing. But thats ok! I’m hoping to learn as we go along. And maybe, while I share my stories and share my experiences, be able to encourage, enlighten, and educate. Offer some advice some insights that might be of use to you. No matter where you are in your career, no matter what role you play in a business. All of us, each of us, has the ingredients needed to be successful, to be a leader. It’s just about finding the way those ingredients can come together to make something fabulous. And I do hope that by sharing a little bit about what I’ve experienced, you’ll be able to identify what your secret sauce is and how you can use it. Together, we can learn and share as we all contribute to each others’ support and nurturing in our various careers and adventures.

You [Mylene] were pivotal in my leadership journey. You made the difference! When you met me, I had lost my mojo and spark. It was your bold walk in your authenticity. It was your vulnerability. It was your encouragement and it was when you challenged me – you knew when to push and when to support. You cared and met me where I was at.  I would not be “here” without you.

I wanted to let you [Mylene] know that when I read your blogs it touches my heart because I picture myself in situations that you write about and makes me think about how and what I would do. I want you to know that I am so blessed to have met you in my life and that we crossed paths because you have made a huge difference in my life. If it wasn’t for you and your coaching, leadership, friendship and positive energy, I wouldn’t be where I am now in life and at Boeing.
