What energizes me the most:
I’m energized by bold leadership. Setting audacious goals often requires leaders to take significant risks. The ones who are willing to forego smaller incremental change and take on ground-shaking ideas are unconventional and truly inspiring to me.
If I were a superhero, I’d be…
Superman. He doesn’t have to worry about traffic jams or flying in a middle seat. X-ray vision could also come in handy when my kids hide my keys.
The most valuable piece of advice I’ve ever received:
If you want to advance your career, bloom where you’re planted. If you focus on exceeding expectations where you are, you’ll never have to ask for a raise or promotion.
My theme song:
“Golden Slumbers/Carry That Weight/The End” by the Beatles. The medley features all four band members singing together (a rarity for the Beatles) and each band member has a guitar or drum solo. To me, it’s a reminder that achieving a great outcome requires both collaborating as a team and contributing as an individual.
My favorite getaway spot:
I love Telluride, CO. I’m not much of a skier, but the combination of the beautiful scenery, great food and proximity to my in-laws (free babysitting!) make it a great place to unwind.
