Amy Leslie, CEO
Being a great leader isn’t easy, and without ways to decode humans, it is nearly impossible! Early in my career, I got results, no question about that, and I quickly became a go-to person for sinking ships. On paper, I achieved success, but it felt a bit like pushing a giant boulder up a slippery hill. Instead of inspiring and empowering people, I was dragging them with me to our goals. Every day, I was exhausted, and far too often, I, along with my team, were frustrated by miscommunication, misunderstanding and conflict. After reading my 360s and realizing I was burning my people out, I thought, “there’s got to be a better way!”
Then, I discovered predictive workforce analytics, which shifted my perspective of people, and transformed the way I lead. I learned to build my power of influence to inspire others, rather than simply directing them.
I realized that in order to get people to willingly follow me, I must tap into what makes them tick, how they will behave, what drives them, and how they think and learn.
I like to call this informed intuition! With this new perspective of my people, I learned how to boost sales, hire better, build teams that click, and inspire others.
I have more than 15 years of experience leading teams and running large business units, in companies from small startups to the Fortune 500. Much of my experience was focused on driving sales and turning around underperforming teams. I’ve seen firsthand how people can quickly turn into a liability if they’re in the wrong positions, unengaged or not managed well.
Predictive workforce analytics changed my life as a leader, and I’m passionate about helping other leaders avoid the mistakes I made.
