SHAWN: Our company uses a leadership assessment tool, and my results show major improvements compared to before I joined the Emerging Leaders program.
Before, I was too passive in disagreements, just trying to get along with everyone. Now, my results show I aim to be assertive but not aggressive, focusing on addressing issues rather than solely aiming to please everyone. It’s about understanding different mindsets while being results-driven and acknowledging that conflicts can lead to healthy outcomes in business.
I also use the roundtable time to get advice on issues like supply chain challenges. The different perspectives from the group are very helpful.
