“This season I wanted to start branching out to folks I don’t know and Mylene was my first interview of someone I truly did not know. We chatted about the podcast and about her interest once before meeting up again to record this session. So much of her story resonated with me and I was in awe to be interviewing someone who is so accomplished as a business woman. Take a listen and hopefully some of her story resonates with you as well.”

In this episode of Makers on a Mission, Jarrod and Olivier speak with Mylene Barizo, founder of Leadership Ladder. We cover Mylene’s experience as a recent UCLA grad starting an entry-level position at Enterprise. We learn about her interactions with her bosses as well as her transition to becoming one herself. We explore the lessons Mylene took from Enterprise and applied them to the work culture at Boeing. This episode is full of great anecdotes about moving up the corporate ladder, the difference between a good boss and a bad one, how to lead and stay authentic, how to take care of your team, how to keep your team accountable, and much more.
Mylene works as a member of the Advisory Board for CivilianCyber. CivilianCyber is a technology-driven workforce development company addressing the increasing shortage of qualified professionals in sectors that range from data, technology and cybersecurity to healthcare and construction.
