Inspire ME Friday: Dee's Shining Moment

"Very inspiring message. I’ve had the pleasure of working with you for over ten years and I know I speak for myself and many, many others; we are incredibly proud of you and love watching your continued success! You are proof that referrals positively impact our company everyday."

Good Morning Folks,

Every Friday I share an internal communique from one of our esteemed employees. Last week Michael, currently a Business Operations Manager and the newly elected President of our Future Leaders Program had the microphone and blew us away

Today I introduce you to the "Joe Biden" of the Future Leaders Program, Demetrius, who is the proud Business Operations Manager at Young and Rubicam. And now direct from the heart and mind of the recently appointed Vice President of the Future Leaders Program, I turn it over to you, "Dee" .....
I write to you all today about leadership, and a few lessons that I carry with me daily. As a leader you must have self-confidence. You must know when to listen, when to talk and how to make quick decisions that will better the employee and client experience. There are different styles of leadership and you have to find the one that is right for you. The important thing is to be yourself and be comfortable leading. You have to be authentic in the way you engage with other people and the way you use your authority. People must learn to trust you. Understanding how you can have the most positive impact and influence on others is crucial. Most importantly, trust your instinct, and know you will always have support. 
I’m a big believer in the power of the subconscious to steer us to the right decisions. A good leader will put a lot of effort into building the right team around him or her. You need people you trust, who are on your side, who respectfully challenge you, who are honest with you, and whose judgment you respect. You need to be able to depend on their support when the going gets tough. This is how we pay it forward folks, it’s an ‘each one – teach one mentality’. It’s a differentiator and what makes us better that the rest (and trust me we ARE!).  
The FLP was established with the sole purpose of spotting talent and identifying those who have “it”.  The FLP is something that’s near and dear to my heart, and I thank Mitch for believing in and supporting this program as the great leader he is for all of us.  It is the very same program that put me in the position I’m in today. I was able to meet some amazing people and also acquire great skills in the process- I cannot wait to continue on growing and developing into a better leader every day. The (re) imagined FLP will be unmatched in our industry. As Shawn mentioned at our first Board meeting, this is our “shining moment."
Do you have “it”?  We believe you do!  It won’t easy and it will take lots of hard work and dedication. But, if you’re able to push through – you too can become like that kid from Queens who dreamt big, but achieved bigger. :) 
Adds a colleague, "You were one of the first people I met when I joined FSO in 2013. You took me around Y&R, told me about the transformations not only at Y&R, but your own transformations.. The growth you experienced at FSO- from 'humble' beginnings to your current status.  You're living proof that the FLP works for those who crave growth, and your message is proof that you possess the qualities of a strong leader."

Well, Dee, this is YOUR shinning moment. Demetrius continues to impress, shine and grow in his role with FSO. BRAVO SIR.. well done, well written and more. You are a credit to all the exciting programs, plans, actions and strategies taking place at FSO. We are grateful to have you.  

Have a great weekend and enjoy the first taste of spring whether admiring the Cherry Blossoms in DC or staring at the sidewalk to observe the last drop of snow melt and actually be smiling and happy to see litter and dirt again.

Love Life!

Mitchell D. Weiner
