Women in Business Profile: Wards Lawyers

By Lindsay Advocate

At WARDS LAWYERS PC we are committed to being leaders in our community in the way we do business, how we practice law and the ways we give back to our community. We are proud to feature five of our business leaders (Melissa, Monique, Amelia, Broghan and Karissa) and share their perspectives on what qualities are important for successful leadership.

Melissa Wemyss – “Leadership is about the team – the culture they keep and embrace, its about empathy for your customers, clients, employees and communities where you do business, its about doing the right thing for the right reasons, being confident enough to take risk and responsible enough to think of those who your decisions and risk may affect.”   Kat Cole – President of Cinnabon

Monique Meloche – “Leadership is not a formula or a program, it is a human activity that comes from the heart and considers the hearts of others. It is an attitude, not a routine.” – Lance Secretan, Author & Management Consultant

Amelia Rodin – “I never dreamed about success; I worked for it.” – Estée Lauder, Cosmetics Mogul

Broghan Dean – “Know what you bring; know what you don’t bring, and build a team that covers everything you need.”  Angie Hicks, founder of Angie’s List

Karissa Ward – “Leadership is the ability to guide others without force into a direction or decision that leaves them still feeling empowered and accomplished.”  Lisa Cash Hanson, Snuggwugg CEO
