“Shoot for the moon, even if you miss you’ll land among the stars.” — Les Brown (Motivational speaker and author). My guest for this Podcast, Ali Lane is a principal at an IT consulting firm called Enable, a role which involves project management, people leadership and managing customer success. Whilst she loves being an “Enabler” celebrating her organisation’s employee-first culture, it is no secret that her passion lies in her “side-gig” in the SES. Ali is an aspiring leader in the Brisbane SES unit, having been appointed as Deputy Group Leader at her group in August this year. As someone with only 3 years tenure in the Service, she understands the challenges faced by new members wanting to make a positive difference in what can be a daunting organisation somewhat resistant to change. Ali is a busy and active person who believes the key to success is being wholehearted, positive and most importantly, showing up. This is a great Podcast for understanding leadership from the perspective of a current emerging leader.
