What do young professionals need to know to become effective leaders that empower others?

Listen as we discuss with Jenn Donahue important qualities for bridging the leadership gap in young professionals today.

Civil engineer, operations consultant, PHD recipient, university lecturer, mentor, military officer - throughout each of these roles, most of them simultaneous, Jenn Donahue has demonstrated the kind of leadership that goes beyond authority to something deeper— TRUST.

That’s how she helped command an 800-personnel Battalion in Afghanistan, drill and blast roads in the coldest reaches of Alaska, develop earthquake defense plans at five different nuclear power plants, and then establish her own engineering firm with clients that include PG&E and National Chevron Phillips.

But these are just credentials. What Jenn would most like to list are the names of the thousands of people she’s led and developed to reach their greatest potential. It’s what drives everything she does, and the reason she’s now taking her message to the keynote stage. Episode Show Notes: https://tinyurl.com/smevm7cz
