Upcoming Events and Deadlines
MEET THE COMMUNITY
Jessica’s positive energy is contagious. When she speaks, her personality shines through and you want to listen. But, that wasn’t always the case. She was once afraid to be herself in professional settings. As a result, her coworkers didn’t feel comfortable around her. She wanted to be an effective leader and knew she had to make a change. So, she did. She is now an authentic leader who brings her full self to work.
Carri McQuerrey-Funk is a well-respected leader and a mentor who many look up to. But it wasn’t always like that. Her early managerial days were marked by a “my way or the highway” attitude. When family tragedy struck, she realized she’d been trying so hard to be a boss while her team really needed a leader. She changed her approach and found that by empowering others, she became more effective and confident.
Leah Ri sparkles. She has magnetic confidence and her potential shines through in everything that she does. Her ambition was evident even in her childhood when she sold lemonade and candy to gullible adults. Those experiences taught her not to be afraid of rejection and how to solve problems. Leah is what the future of workplace leadership looks like. And, all we can say is – sign us up! Because it’s a future we’re thrilled to be heading into.
Dr. Marlene Fuller
Dr. Marlene Fuller learned the hard way that work won’t love you back. She’s always been an overachiever, believing that her work was her worth. Endless hustling did the trick until life started throwing curveballs. Somewhere amidst life’s toughest moments, she started to talk. By reaching out for support, she learned to value herself beyond her accomplishments and found sharing her journey more fulfilling than chasing success.
ARM Compliance Business Solutions
Tonia knows she has the power to choose her own path. If you told her this in her twenties, though, she wouldn’t have believed you. Her childhood and early adulthood were characterized by abuse at the hands of others. After a heart attack at 23, she decided she must change her life. From that moment on, she took control of her future and created her own success. Tonia is now a true testament to the power of choice.
