I'm sharing this as part of the effort by #girldads unite to #breakthebias

This is what leadership, inspiration and wisdom looks like. I'm going to encourage my two daughters Ashley and Jessica to read this. Truly inspiring.

What advice would Kelly give to those that are at an early stage in their careers in the utilities industry or even at a mid-term stage? 

"This job is not about me. This job is about what my members want and how can I help attain that for them. You sometimes hear this embodied in the concept of servant leadership.

If I had an admonition to a new leader about how to succeed, I think that's what it would be. It's not about you. It's about what you can do for your constituency to help them succeed."

IMO, this is true about all leadership roles, just replace the term "constituency" with employees, students, customers, etc. It still applies.
