Season 1, Episode #3
What this podcast is about
Welcome to Defining Moments of Leadership, a podcast hosted by Marsha Acker. We’re joined today by guest Carrie Robinson to explore what it looks like to be vulnerable and brave in your leadership as you make space for open collaboration rather than following a scripted plan. Carrie is Director of The Office of Habitat Conservation at The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA). She is a lover of leadership development programs, a participant in NOAA’s Leadership Development Competencies Program and the National Conservation Leadership Institute Program.
The work of the Office of Habitat Conservation at NOAA focuses on natural resource management, habitat restoration and protection. The collaborative and on-the-ground nature of the work is what ultimately drew Carrie to the profession. She believes that leadership development is a lifelong journey of growth and learning, and recognizes that one’s real growth comes from challenging moments.
