In an interview, Faye Richardson-Green, director, Global Learning and Development, Steelcase Inc, talked about her career. She said that training remained her avocation from 1976 until 2003, when her vocation and avocation intersected, and she joined the learning team at Steelcase University. Personally, her volunteer community leadership experiences provided courage and confidence in the public arena -- fear is mostly an internal battle; showed the value of exercising a voice for others -- the power of one; and shaped her leadership and interaction style-beliefs matter, and equity matters. Professionally, they broadened her network; provided recognition and influence; and increased my opportunities. She goes to her co-workers, as well as some learning professionals outside of Steelcase whom she has met through the years. These are people who still are excited by the learning process.
