Wow, I did it! I promised myself that I would have my leadership blog and speaking website up by the end of the year. And thanks to motivation from the amazing Jen Sincero’s Bad Ass coaching class and to Seth Godin’s constant message to ‘just ship your work dang it‘, I managed to build my website in a matter of days.
What’s even more amazing is that I am NOT technically inclined and I built this site myself. It will morph over the coming months to something much more amazing (hopefully) but the most important thing is that I actually have my own website and leadership blog!
So I guess the first thought I would like to publish is that you are your thoughts and you can create your reality. This is virtual proof!
I am now going to pay attention to my family who is wondering what the heck I am doing.
Want to know a bit more about me?
At the ripe old age of 28, I began my journey of leading StoneAge. I quickly learned how to adjust my style to effectively lead smart people who knew a heck of a lot more than I did. Being a relatively young leader, especially for my role, I had a lot to learn–not only about the product and the industry–but also how to manage and motivate people. And managing and motivating people takes exceptional leadership and communication skills. To be quite frank, I screwed up a lot in my early days, and still am learning from the mistakes I make today. That’s why I am passionate about personal growth, self-awareness, and improved communication skills and am determined to be the best leader I can be.
Along the way, I developed a knack for what my colleagues teasingly call Kerry’s Human Engineering. It is incredibly motivating and rewarding to help my employees identify and develop talents, find the “right” role, and then succeed. I am committed to helping my fellow coworkers improve–not only as employees– but as human beings, even when it means having hard conversations. My leadership style is based around open and honest communication and constantly asking for feedback on how I can be a better leader.
This brings me to why I created my blog and podcast… I know that you want to be a successful, impactful leader. And I know you want to develop the leadership skills to meet the demands of your work and life. To do this, you want to learn from other leaders who have been where you are. You want to hear from leaders you can relate to because they know the journey is not easy and the pressure to perform is intense. Through my blog and podcast, you will gain valuable insight and get expert advice. You will learn from shared experiences and connect with vulnerable, honest, and authentic leaders.
I am here to help. Why? Because I believe your team and family need you and your gifts. You can lead yourself and others to their full potential.
