Expanding the wisdom, visibility, and influence of women in business

June Breakfast

“The Essence of Leadership
- Learn to Sustain Your Soul”

Featuring Sheri Flies, Assistant Vice President, Global Sustainability and Compliance, Costco


Authentic leadership and servant leadership are concepts spoken about, but what are they really and what do they look like in practice? Senior Costco executive, Sheri Flies joins us to break down her understanding of these leadership terms and how they work to support her success in the corporate world of Costco and in her work mentoring others. Whether you are looking for tips and skills for leading people through life or for being the best leader in your own life, she will have something powerful for you. 

Join us for breakfast as Sheri opens up about how she found her voice, the gift we all have of personal power even when we lack positional power, and how with courage and confidence we can mentor each other to step into our power.
