On Tuesdays and Thursdays, I invite guests to share personal stories about small acts of leadership that help shape their lives.
In Episode 24, Sherrie Niedermeier illustrates the formidable effect that leadership has through her stories. She discusses the importance of friendship, caring for others, and maintaining congruency between thoughts and actions.
00:00 Prologue: Leading with Care
Sherrie is the Chief Learning Design Officer at Human Capital Institute (HCI). If you work for Sherrie, you’ll quickly learn that she has high standards for performance, but she’ll do whatever she can to ensure that you’re successful. Sherrie cares about the people she works with and wants everyone to excel in what they do, both personally and professionally.
01:21 Part 1: Friendships with Direct Reports
Sherrie tells a story about a boss at a previous organization. The boss complained to Sherrie that she was too close to her direct reports.
12:57 Part 2: To be a Fear Factor or to Care
If you manage a team, do you perceive the negative more than the positive or vice versa? Do you see them as people first and then employees or vice versa? Sherrie conveys a leadership story that relates to these questions.
20:17 Part 3: Striving for authenticity
Sherrie advises us to strive for authenticity and explains what that means.
