Lessons From Lisa: Early Stage Leadership Transition

We’re 10 days into Lisa’s new role as a Managing Director (responsibilities are similar to an assistant city manager). I wanted to chronicle her journey periodically for your benefit. She’s transitioning away from being the longtime Director of HR while transitioning into a broader leadership role supervising multiple departments. The journey involves letting go of some things while grabbing hold of new things, including getting used to having an assistant. 

Every so often we’ll check in on the journey so you can benefit from what she’s learning along the way. Few things are better than learning from the experiences and insights of others.

Compassion's Role In Leadership

Compassion’s Role In Leadership

Ron Ashby passed away in the early morning hours of September 11, 2023. He was surrounded by family including a daughter named Lisa Norris. Lisa’s life was turned upside down weeks earlier when her father suffered a stroke. But while the view from outside may have appeared calm, there was maniacal effort happening under the surface. Things aren’t always as they appear. 

Everybody suffers. Everybody endures hardships. 

It’s unreasonable to believe we can distance from our problems when we enter the workplace. Each of us are complete people. Filled with hopes, dreams, desires – and suffering, challenges and adversity. 

We all crave encouragement, support, grace and compassion. 

Judgment is easy. Compassion is hard.

Compassion is the pinnacle of high performance leadership because it’s so human. Compassion is a focus on others. 

Today, our show includes Lisa, the recipient of compassion and Cheryl De Leon, Lisa’s boss, the deliverer of that compassion. Let’s learn from their story. 

Be well. Do good. Grow great!

Since the disruption of the Pandemic organizations have wrestled with redefining what work looks like. Hybrid work is partly in-person work and partly remote work. For some organizations it’s completely remote except for a few team building in-person events. Hybrid work is not one-size-fits-all. Join us today as we discuss how we can figure out what hybrid work might be best suited for our organizations.
