I invite guests to share personal stories about small acts of leadership that help shape their lives. In Episode 50, Virginie Lemay shares a powerful story about choices and attitudes. She then describes a situation in which an employee’s opinion changes because of how she led. Virginie also advises us on how we can frame our leadership practices in practical terms.
In addition to being an excellent salsa dancer (see acronym below), Virginie is a leadership trainer, consultant, and coach who speaks (and can train in) 5 languages: English, French, German, Dutch, and Italian. If that isn’t enough, Virginie is also the Chief Diversity and Inclusion Officer for Prospective Force in Luxembourg.

09:58 Part 2: Gratitude from Leading Effectively
When we lead teams effectively – rather than just manage them – your team not only develops but can express gratitude for how you practice leadership. In this story, Virginie illustrates how one employee’s judgment about Virginie changed because of how she led her direct reports.
