Jane Miller, CEO of Lily’s Sweets discusses the topic of brand leadership, highlighting the inevitability of change as it lends itself to a brand’s improvement and growth.
Miller shared a personal story of the moment she understood she needed to adjust her leadership style in order for the brand to grow, realizing her “flamboyant” style was a poor fit in a corporate environment. She learned she needed to communicate more effectively, getting to the facts as quickly as possible.
“I didn’t change who I was, I changed how I interacted with people,” she said.
Surrounding yourself with good people, having empathy for your team, being honest and transparent, and taking time for yourself were among Miller’s tips for finding success.
