Kayti Sullivan, Yelp Senior VP – Lead More and Do Less

What you’ll learn from this episode:

1 – You don’t need to own things to make change. You can lead from any seat on the bus.

2 – Leadership with vision:

  • Where are we going? People need a milestone to be working on. Once a quarter I try to set aside time to think about where we’re going. Chatting with stakeholders is included.
  • Vision for your team and for each individual. Mantra “Give your people a reputation to live up to.” People want to have a high standard and a vision to live up to. As leaders it’s important to be able to see the best potential in people and draw that out of them.
  • Keep the big picture in mind. We are all one small part of an entire system that is working together.

3 – What advice would you give to new managers coming in? The team takes the tone of its leader and always explain the “why.”
