I wouldn't be where I am professionally without these mentors and advisers. Below I share my "thank you" so you can see how much I cherished my time with them.
I want to thank you for giving me the opportunity to spread my wings when there was no reason for you to know that I was capable. Thank you for taking a chance on me... for:
Instilling in us that a great TEAM is far more valuable than the sum of it's parts.
Showing us that psychological safety can bring out innovation and professional excellence.
Being available, even though you were being pulled in a dozen different directions simultaneously.
Making time for fun, because we were working hard.
Building trust, because the 'means' were just as important as the 'goals'.
Smiling, when frowning would have been much easier.
Going high even though others were going low.
Being funny, to break up the seriousness.
Every time I think about you, I ask myself "why didn't I spend more time with her?!" Thank you, from the bottom of my heart.
