The protégé


studies


leadership


from


others outside of senior in-house ranks. For example, she turns to military ranks for inspiration and instruction. “I went to Thayer Leader Development Group at West Point and studied how the army develops leaders. They keep it simple; they clearly communicate a mission and then tell people to go do it. They tell them the ‘what’ and ‘why’ and let the team figure out the ‘how.’ In the military the ‘follow me’ guy doesn’t always come back; if he falls then everybody needs the capability to step up and complete the mission. We call that empowerment: Everybody has to be a leader. I empower


my team around me to figure out how to do things. I set the direction we are going and our destination, and trust them to find out how to get there.”


Growth in Tough Times


That team around Makris is growing. “Every year companies in our industry say, “Things will pick up this year.” Instead of being defensive and pulling in, tough and challenging times spark innovation for us. While others are laying off, we’re hiring in areas where we need to continue investing.” Rising and growing through challenges is a longstanding


trait that Makris has done in her personal past. It’s telling that she considers her greatest career accomplishment not currently reaching the executive ranks of a global aviation leader, but persisting and preparing to rise in a way that only a female can claim in a male-dominated industry. “I would have to say that earning my MBA while going to school full time and (at the John Molson School of Business she was class president) pregnant with my first child and working in highly demanding roles while balancing everything at that stage of my life and giving every area 100 percent was perhaps my greatest career accomplishment. Hard work, and finding


“I would have to say that earning my MBA while going to school full time and (at the John Molson School of Business she was class president) pregnant with my first child and working in highly demanding roles while balancing everything at that stage of my life and giving every area 100 percent was perhaps my greatest career accomplishment. Hard work, and finding the balance that worked for me is what got me to where I am.”
