marillyn hewson quotes

Marillyn Hewson is the chairman, president and CEO of defense contractor Lockheed Martin. This quotable industry leader has been named one of the most powerful women in business multiple times and has a net worth estimated at well over $100 million. A standout leader in a traditionally male-dominated industry, Hewson is an inspiration to women in business and business leaders in general. Here are some of my favorite motivational business quotes from Marrillyn Hewson.

1.  "Leaders must exemplify integrity and earn the trust of their teams through their everyday actions. When you do this, you set high standards for everyone at your company. And when you do so with positive energy and enthusiasm for shared goals and purpose, you can deeply connect with your team and customers." 

2.  "If you were just to look at Lockheed Martin, you'd see a lot of women in senior roles in our company and, not only that, our customers, so I don't consider it an old boys' club."

3.  "Leaders must exemplify integrity and earn the trust of their teams through their everyday actions. When you do this, you set high standards for everyone at your company. And when you do so with positive energy and enthusiasm for shared goals and purpose, you can deeply connect with your team and customers."

4.  "The mission we are about is something that truly energizes me." 

5.  "The best employees are those who bring real energy and initiative to the job. I like to know whether you're the kind of person who can set priorities, take initiative, and drive results right from the beginning." 

6. "I feel that at Lockheed Martin we have the opportunity to make a difference supporting men and women fighting for our peace and freedom."

7. "Good leaders organize and align people around what the team needs to do. Great leaders motivate and inspire people with why they're doing it. That's purpose. And that's the key to achieving something truly transformational."

8. "In times of uncertainty, employees crave clarity. As a leader, you won't always have all of the answers - no one expects you to - so you must be open to listening and learning from others. Once you understand a particular challenge and outline the options, you have to be confident in making bold and optimistic decisions."

9. "I do work hard, but I have a passion for work. That's just who I am." 

10. "I certainly want to continue to be a role model. But I don't think it's necessarily about being a female in our business. I think it's about... my track record, my results." 

11. "My job is to make sure that as our customers' priorities change, as the environment changes, we shift that portfolio of products to meet them."

12. "Leaders have to see past problems to solutions." 

13.  "Since we also work closely with our nation's armed forces, we tend to reflect a lot on leadership and how we can inspire successful teamwork, cooperation, and partnerships." 

14.  "Candidates need to demonstrate strategic thinking and strong problem solving skills. And, just as importantly, they need to know when and how to ask for help."
