Advance Session: “Leading Teams”

On July 11, our 2019 Advance program participants convened for a session dedicated to exploring the roles we play on teams and leading teams. Alessandra Lezama (19) of RGHP Holdings LLC made a presentation which included “Ten Tips to Help You Be the Best You.” She emphasized the importance of owning your vision and doing the “mental gymnastics” required to make your goals a reality. LEAD Board member Dr. Steven Jones of JONES & Associates Consulting and Dr. Shanna Teel of Dr. Shanna Teel & Company led a discussion on “Executive Success: Men and Women Working Together.” The conversation covered a range of inclusivity and bias topics.  The cohort continued work on their strengths with Erin Passons of Passons Consulting who spoke on “Building a Strong Team,” and helped the group determine how to leverage team strengths for the best outcomes and productivity. And LEAD Board member Laura Georgantos (19) of SDG&E gave an inspiring talk about “Living Bravely with Confidence and Courage.” Many thanks to Alessandra for hosting the Advance cohort at The University Club!
