Mark Sullivan, MS Organizational Leadership

Senior Marking Manager, Gatorade


“As a former cadet at Norwich University Military College of VT, Lieutenant in the United States Coast Guard and currently a senior manager at a Fortune 500 company, I believe I have developed leadership attributes that enable me to succeed intellectually, emotionally and socially in our ever-changing world. These same attributes and fundamental skills are reflective when I think of the leader Sheila Babnis currently is and the leader she inspires all of us to be. Her determination, sensitivity, and passion to triumph have allowed her opportunities to apply leadership principles in unique real-life situations. Sheila has the keen ability to assess a situation, develop a plan and modify the plan as the situation changes.  This sequence, repeated again and again has required her to integrate diverse skill sets resulting in a unique personal leadership style. Sheila responds to problematic situations with “grace under pressure”.  This ability is complimented by her strongest attribute, sensitivity. Combining leadership skill sets and sensitivity has enjoined her fellow coworkers to reach their potential and truly be the best they can be”

From the very beginning Sheila’s approach was to make me see the “bigger picture”.  She worked with me to understand my leadership style so I was conformable with my leadership and understanding how to expand my contributions.  She helped me to how to look at things from different perspectives, have courage, to take risk that I was comfortable with and to try things I had not even considered. Sheila is great at making people feel they will be able to achieve whatever they want by believing in themselves, by taking risks and by working hard to learn and understand. I can only thank Sheila for her influence on me and the benefit her coaching has had on my career opportunities and my leadership style.
