NOAA Environmental Leadership Seminar Series: Past Presentations

Everyone has a story, what's your leadership story?

by Katie Rowley on 2022-09-15T08:32:30-04:00 | Comments

Date: September 14, 2022

Speaker: Paul M. Scholz, Deputy Assistant Administrator for NOAA’s National Ocean Service (NOS).

Abstract:  “As we look ahead into the next century, leaders will be those who empower others.” – Bill Gates.

As we nurture the future generation of leaders, I want to share my personal story and emphasize that there are many paths for achieving career success and writing your own leadership story. From serving as a Peace Corps volunteer in Ecuador, to my role today as the NOS Deputy Assistant Administrator, I have had the opportunity to grow and develop as an environmental advocate and lifelong learner.

Woven throughout my leadership narrative are the tenets of adaptability, public service, mentorship, and a strong organizational culture. These beliefs have helped me get to where I am today.

I hope that sharing my experiences may encourage others to ask themselves, “What is the next chapter of your story?”
