Welcome to an immersive storytelling episode sponsored by the Inspired Leadership Initiative (ILI) at the University of Notre Dame.
On this episode, I speak with ILI alum, Michele Kellrooney. We had an inspiring conversation about her career journey and the transformation that occurred for her along the way. Here are three interconnected themes from our conversation.
1️⃣ Embrace Career Transitions: Michele started her career as an actor and transitioned into education, teaching theater to young audiences. She recognized that career paths can evolve, and she embraced new opportunities that could lead to amazing transformations.
2️⃣ Leap of Faith: When presented with the opportunity to join the ILI program, initially she doubted her abilities. However, she realized that sometimes taking a leap of faith even without knowing the outcome, can spark transformative experiences and personal growth.
3️⃣ Transformation Beyond Career: While the ILI program provided Michele with tools and tangible skills, she says the most impactful transformation occurred internally. It’s not just about what we do, but how we approach it. In her case, it meant shifting her mindset, embracing change, and discovering new levels of intentionality in her teaching.
When you listen to this episode, seriously consider her point about exploring possibilities without knowing what’s next.
