The past year proved to be one of great success for Morris as she led her team in the development of initiatives that played an integral role in reinforcing the value of the NBCU portfolio as well as supporting affiliate renewals. Making yourself “available and engaged” are two important components of successful mentoring, Morris says.
What’s the most important aspect of mentoring?
Doing it! I find it important to make yourself available and engaged, consistently meeting with your mentee and listening intently to what they really want and need.
What/who inspires you at work? What/who inspires you outside the office?
At work, I am inspired by so many of our incredible leaders and my marketing peers. I would have to say I am the most inspired daily by my team. Each and every one of them is so smart, creative, dedicated and motivated. The status quo is never enough for them—they are always reaching for more and better. When out of the office, I was and still am inspired by my mother who always lived her life on her terms, always with kindness, generosity and loyalty.
Your favorite trick for unwinding?
Other than Pinot Noir, I would say a great TV series and Candy Crush Soda.
