Want to know more about LNE Consulting‘s CEO, Julie Edmonds? We asked her a few questions to learn more about her.
Q. What advice would you give to your younger self?
A. Stop worrying about everything! I wish I would have known that if I just kept working really hard and putting all my drive and passion into what I was doing, I would hit my goals. Instead, I always worried about what would happen. Now, I know that no matter the time frame on my goals, I will hit them if I keep putting the right actions into place.
Q. What’s in your briefcase?
A. A few things… 1. My journal. I write everyday. I write my thoughts, goals, ideas, reminder, affirmations, conversations, and I even doodle! The front cover says “Make Things Happen.” 2. The best book ever: “How to Win Friends and Influence People” and 3. A power bar. I need to eat or I go crazy!
Q. What was the toughest challenge in your career and how did you overcome it?
A. Again, this takes me back to the advice I wish I would have known then. I always worried about everything. What IF? That fear drove me to become very confident and mentally tough because I told myself that I had no choice but to overcome it. The more I pushed through and the more I experienced, the easier it became and I was able to turn down the distraction.
Having a mentor in your career can be a huge factor in your success. LNE Consulting has mentors for all of the new and seasoned employees. Below, CEO Julie, gives tips on how to be a better mentor.
1. Work as if you are being watched by your greatest mentor 24/7.
This will force you to go the extra mile and make better decisions.
2. Delegate and then don’t interfere.
They may never do it exactly as you expect, but be okay with that.
3. Speak with conviction.
When you believe what you are saying, people believe you. Speak from your gut and let people feel your emotions.
4. Let people know when they are making good decisions.
The more confident they feel about their choices, the better they do.
