I was a master at compartmentalization and putting things in a box. You think compartmentalization is adaptability, but it’s a lack of authenticity. Ultimately, it leads to the detriment of your fulfillment.

More About How to Lead with Heart and leave a Legacy with Tricia Manning

During our interview on Passion Struck, I asked Tricia Manning about how she learned to lead with heart.

Tricia Manning Lead With Heart Leave a Legacy for Passion Struck

Tricia explains, “I remember just that moment. I’m a member of the executive team. I’m sitting around the table with my peers. And we had Bain consulting come in and it was the second time we had spent many, many millions of dollars to have a consulting firm come in and tell us what we were doing wrong. And I’ll never forget it because it was the first time we had a consultant sit in a room with this executive team and say, ‘Guys, what you’re trying to do, only five to 8% of companies will ever succeed.

That’s not because of the technology and it’s not because of the strategy. It is truly because you aren’t finding a way to go deep in the organization to engage the hearts and minds of the people to be able to make the shift. And that was really an awakening for me. And it became about the ability of the leadership to engage all the way down to the frontline and get everybody on board to actually make that transformation and that shift and their work.

So there were a lot of learnings for me around that, I would tell you, that was really hard work in my lifetime at Catalina. We weren’t successful when I left the organization 11 months later, they filed for bankruptcy. So there’s something to really be said about the people being your biggest asset and your biggest enabler for transformation and for change.
