Murray Hill and Conference Center: Director, Lali Sanchez Aldana
Murray Hill, NYC (2019-2020) + 100% Female leadership team
“We had attended a conference of people from all over the world with 153 leaders and invited select team members who worked in similar conference centers. The event organizers asked us to share what we learned from One Degree with the group during one of the education sessions.
Once we returned from the leadership empowerment event, we asked our team, ‘Do you feel you had an advantage over the rest of the participants who attended the conference because you attended One Degree lessons?’ The team said, ‘Yes! Because we can digest what we are learning much more than the rest of the people because we’ve had a great background. Not only theoretical, but really practical. Originally we hated meetings with the team before One Degree. We could see the faces in the room, arms folded and say to ourselves, this meeting isn’t going well and felt dread prior to meetings thinking, let’s get this meeting over with – and fast.
Meetings are different from 6-8 months ago. It’s a completely different story. We now can talk about things we want to keep, things we want to implement, things we want to refine, or omit. And we can have a nice conversation talking while sharing different viewpoints. Now we look forward to meetings and love them! Now we can have a dialog with each other.”
