In this episode, Heather speaks with Sarah Pierre Louis, Sr. Manager Marketing Team Development for Tableau Software (recently acquired by Salesforce) about her leadership style, and her fascinating approach to helping her team come up with their “why” and their own solutions. She talks about the times when she got in her own way while leading a team and how she made her way out of it.
