Integrity breeds trust and confidence, humility encourages openness to ideas and inclusion, and one must have the courage to stand by their values and inspire others to do the same." ROSEANN LARSON Chief Information Security Officer "There are many qualities I value in leaders, including integrity, authenticity, intel- ligence, commitment, vision, creativity, and compassion. The leaders that have had the most impact on my career had a combination of these qualities and I try to emulate these characteristics as I lead my team today." ANITA GRAHAM VP and Chief Human Resources Officer "I most admire collaborative, inclusive, and empathetic leader- ship. Great leaders build and execute shared objectives, and enable others to achieve their goals and grow personally and professionally. The key underpinnings for these attributes are integrity, humility, and building trust." KELLYE GORDON Senior Director, Ethics and Compliance "Leadership means looking inward by being totally authentic, looking outward by recognizing the value each person holds, and connecting the two through empowerment. The best mentor I ever had was a woman who once told me: "Nothing you do or achieve in life will mat- ter unless it results in someone else feeling empowered to be her best self." KARYN PETERSON VP, Global Consumer and Shopper Insights "Great leaders have the ability to get the best out of others, instill trust, and ask questions that unlock new ideas and opportunities." "What leadership attributes do you value most in others and in yourself?" Celebrate > VF Corporation vfc.com
