We’ve all heard them: The nagging little voices (be they inside your head or from the mouths of those around you) telling you that you are crazy for taking the step you are about to take. That was where Skyler Mattson found herself when she decided to leave a big agency for then-scrappy up and comer WongDoody. That leap of faith paid off and then some as Mattson today finds herself at the helm of a team that is now 1500 in size. Key to her escalation to the top: Curiosity, being a lifelong learner, and building a culture that practices creative democracy. Skyler supports women in a number of ways, be it through the creation of The Motherboard that gives voice to a global community of thousands of moms, and her View from the C-Suite webinar series. Enjoy this rich conversation filled some wonderful wisdom from a leader who believes in taking chances and not looking back.
