On this episode, developing leader, Ellie Harrison joins us for an honest discussion around leadership, learning, and the challenges young professionals will face as they climb the career ladder.
Growing up with three brothers, Ellie experienced leadership from a young age. Whether it was fighting for the rights to the TV, or practising sharp negotiation skills, she had the fundamentals of a successful leader engrained, from the get go.
Starting her career as a graduate, Ellie explains the fascination she felt around leadership. That fascination quickly turned to passion for guiding others, being on the front foot, and developing her ideas. During the episode, Ellie discusses various experiences and lessons learned outside of the comfort zone, something she knows well and promotes.
When the organisation Ellie worked within joined the Marsh family, she was told to look at this as a ‘village of opportunity’, and that she did. Describing the ‘Colleague Resource Groups’ available to her as a ‘map’ of the business, Ellie was keen to get involved in these to grow her network and help others.
