"Share stories about your brand, talk authentically about your brand, and get people who love your brand to share their own stories. That's how you build a lasting company."
- Michele Romanow
We travel home to Alberta to share the Extra(ordinary) journey of our Founder & CEO, Reena Khullar. We meet with Reena on the outskirts of Calgary, and she takes us through her upbringing in hometown Edmonton, her perspective on the future of roles in organizations across the globe, her ambitious pursuit to develop a brand that would expand beyond borders, and the relationships that led her personal and professional decisions when measuring success...
"...second chances are a gift...people, opportunities, and life shouldn't be taken for granted. I had one chance to get this right: Agilis Executive Consulting is the result of a well-developed strategy and an entrepreneurial pursuit that would either succeed well or fail with grace. There was no room for error, and I had little time to leave an impression..."
"Organizations today are redesigning their workforce strategies...roles that have traditionally been compartmentalized into titled labels with predetermined core competencies are no longer developed with the intent to seek the right incumbent. Instead, we are working to create roles for employees that we recognize will help lead the organization to success..."
"...there is absolutely nothing more challenging than to look inward and recognize what isn't working, and then believe in yourself to such a degree that any decisions you make are celebrated and honored by you, yourself, first and foremost..."
"...although I have made quick decisions in the short term, uncertain if these would benefit Agilis and life overall in the long term, I don't carry regrets on my actions. If anything, I look back and may regret what I didn't do versus what I did..."
"Today, I am a single woman, a co-parent, a mother, a daughter, an entrepreneur....the labels we wear to identify ourselves also carry a subliminal message, which is that we must fit within these roles as defined by societal norms or within predetermined standards of a functioning relationship. This feels like a disservice to what humanity is pursuing as the ultimate euphoria - a life led authentically through our values, emotions and behaviours...so, I'll share my journey as 'Reena', and just 'Reena'...".
...stay tuned for the final edition of the Extra(ordinary) Executive!
