Jill and Stephanie know what really works!
At Jill’s first Good Leadership Breakfast, she hit it off with another woman at her table, Stephanie Franciscus, Director of Sales Operations at Medica. That friendship grew into regular coffees and phone calls, and eventually into a mentor relationship, discussing everything from the speeches at Good Leadership Breakfasts to major career decisions. “Stephanie is helping me to embrace current challenges, rather than worrying about the next huge landmark in my life. Having a mentor who knows me both personally and professionally gives me a fresh perspective.”
Jill makes it a goal to bring someone new to every breakfast, to “pay it forward,” and give someone else the opportunity to discover a similar mentor relationship. “We need all kinds of leaders at the breakfast, and all kinds of leaders need the chance to develop.”
Good leaders constantly evaluate where they need to refocus. And they find mentors to help lead them through that journey.
Please share with me: what has inspired you to refocus in your relationships?
