Favorite Quotes

21:53 - "If I'm gonna take on something that feels scary to me, I don't use the word scary. I say 'that's exciting'. It's the same physiology. I just choose a word that's more supportive of an outcome that would help me 'propel' toward it instead of 'repel' from it. All day long I have stories about where people have been in a situation that they think is doom and gloom. Fast forward three years from now, they'll look back and say, 'oh my God, thank God that happened'. - Michelle Reines

6:47 - "I didn't make just one mistake. Even as I was trying to figure the leadership thing out, I would continue to have those rivalries, those competitive behaviors that are unbecoming of teamwork. I couldn't find my voice. And when I did it, it didn't land professionally." - Michelle Reines

7:04 - "So I didn't know how to communicate effectively up the channel. I certainly didn't play well on the sandbox with my peers, 'coz I played win-lose. I wanted to beat them. I wanted to win at all costs and I wanted my team to win. And I was righteous about protecting my team and righteous about my voice and I'm gonna do it sugar-free and I'm gonna be authentic and, and all this stuff. And there's a way to communicate that I learned a little too late."- Michelle Reines

8:19 - "I didn't make the same mistakes over and over again, but there was definitely a pattern. And the most important thing that I needed to do on this journey was to stop-drop-roll and discover the lessons so that I don't continue making those same mistakes." - Michelle Reines

18:32 - "Whether we like it or not, the first and most important order of business are the 'people' parts. If we don't get that right, it doesn't matter that we have all the best processes in place. If their skill sets are not fully developed, if they're not effectively coached, and if they're not highly engaged, we're gonna dilute our outcomes regardless. So, people priorities are your most important priorities. Performance outcomes are what we get to enjoy when we get the people parts right." - Michelle Reines
