Kellie Kantner
How would you describe your leadership style?
I’d like to think I lead by example of being open, honest and flexible. Although I may be responsible for making decisions or solving a problem, I do like to involve others for their input and perspective to ensure it’s the best solution for others, the agency and our department.
What’s the key to an efficient partnership?
Although there is no magic wand, I do believe the efficiency and effectiveness go hand in hand and are founded on good relationships and flexibility while working smarter, not harder. Knowing your end goal, having a roadmap founded on sound processes, however, it’s just as important to know when and how to flex without compromising the quality of your work or your relationships built.
