Valerie Bovey Hooks

“I have been thinking about this. I think for me it is a variety of things. It is being available. When things come up in areas I believe in and help is needed I say ‘yes’ even when I am uncomfortable doing it. I hate failing but one of the biggest things I continuously work on is to have the mindset that failure isn’t a stopping point but a step. How can I use this hard moment to make the next thing I do better? I see connections in the struggles I had in the past to my wins in the future and work to encourage others to do the same. Every time I do something out of my comfort zone I learn, even if I didn’t do it well. Leadership to me is the willingness to take action and have the grit to keep going when things get hard.”
