Lessons Learned in Leadership: Give Your Team the Edge

Add to calendar

Selena Delesie recognizes that highly successful teams embrace several specific principles. When every person embodies these principles, teams have people who are passionate about the work they do and who show up every day eager and ready to deliver their best. A self-admitted geek, Selena was thrilled to hear Sir Richard Branson speak live at an event last year—in-person and in the same room! She learned that his success is built on the same principles she coaches: listening deeply, believing people truly matter, having an addiction to learning, serving others, flowing through change, moving through fear, and following joy. Although these principles are seemingly generic in nature, testers can embody them in particular ways to become leaders in their organizations. To emphasize these principles, Selena shares real-life stories in leadership alongside highlights from Sir Richard. She connects each principle with practical steps you can take to gain a truly competitive edge.
