Launchpad Leadership: Home Base


A conversation with launchpad leader Kelly Ellison

Advantages of being a launchpad:

1.      Sets a standard for growth and being growth minded

2.      Guides the hiring process

3.      Helps leaders to get to know others in the early days of their employment.

4.      Affirms other’s interests:

a. Seeing their dream’s goal

b. Being inspired to hope

Opportunities for launchpad leaders:

1.      Recognize the reality that people are going to leave

2.      Accept that investing in people is worth the emotional and operational toll

3.      Assure that those on the launch pad stay long enough for character and leadership growth while bringing value to the business.

4.      Avoid carrying the weight of another’s development

“Young leaders need be hungry to launch but humble to learn.” Kelly Ellison

Bottom line:

1.      Bet on leaders and bet on hope

2.      Being a part of the bigger picture is worth the risk.

About the Podcast

The Art of Leadership
Experienced leader, Niña Ellison, focuses on those seeking a fresh perspective into some of the hardest skills a leader will ever learn.
The Art of Leadership with Niña Ellison focuses on the soft skills of leadership, their value and the power of their influence. As a leader, if you are interested in moving from success to significance then balancing both hard and soft skills is essential! These seemingly opposing skills complement rather than compete with each other. Hard skills are demonstrated through technical expertise that results in clearly measured goals being reached. They are vital to the success of any initiative or program. On the other hand, soft skills emphasize the transformation of people more than the transaction of tasks. They highlight behavioral changes and making a difference in people’s lives. This podcast is for leaders who are seeking a fresh perspective into some of the hardest soft skills a leader will ever learn. You can connect with Nina at https://www.healthyleadership.online
