“How to Build a Leadership Style for Your Personality” Interview with Lili Sarafan – CEO, Home Care Assistance
It’s time for another new episode of FemgineerTV on leadership styles!
You’ll recall in that in the last episode of FemgineerTV, I interviewed Maria Giudice the VP of Experience of Autodesk and author of The Rise of the DEO. We talked about how traditional CEOs have been replaced by a new breed called DEOs.
In the latest episode of FemgineerTV, I’ve got a great example of a DEO for you: Lily Sarafan, the CEO of HomeCare.
Lily began her career when HomeCare was just a startup, and has been integral to its growth and eventual acquisition.
But that’s not all, Lily is also very active in the tech community as a startup advisor, mentor, and investor, she’s also involved with a number of nonprofits, holds a political office, and avidly travels.
As you watch the episode you’ll learn how she manages all her projects and has learned to cultivate a leadership style over the years that resonates with her personality. Lily definitely exhibits many of the DEO traits such as:
Evaluating and take risks
Being a systems level thinker
Using her intuition to guide her decision-making
Having a high level of social intelligence
Caring about getting shit done!
Influencing and shaping a company’s culture through her unique leadership style
Even if you aren’t a leader, this is a very valuable episode to watch, because you’ll learn the following from Lily:
Why it’s OK if people don’t expect much from you and how you can use that to your advantage
Why having a leadership oriented personality is very different from being an effective leader
Why the best advice isn’t necessarily what you’re supposed to follow
How you can lead and built a support network even if you’re shy or introverted
- Why it’s important to value people over product
