Learn from Julie Charlestein, president and CEO of Premier Dental Products. Join Seasons Leadership Co-Founder Susan Ireland and Seasons Leadership Communications and Marketing Leader Lauren Penning as they interview Julie about leading with authenticity, the excitement behind the dental industry and how she adapted to the gravitas of her leadership role.

Show Notes:

Julie shares the story of how Premier Dental got started (1:34) and the impact of the family business on the dental industry. Next the women discuss her personal leadership journey (2:35). Connecting to her mission, or “why,” Julie talks about her success (4:03) and how she looks to the past and her grandfather “Mr. M” (5:20). Her favorite adage of his was “remember who you are,” which connects to the theme that continues to show up in this episode “the importance of authenticity.”

Julie teases exciting news coming soon to the dental industry through her company’s innovation (7:10), how the pandemic challenges affected her business and how her employees rose to the challenge (9:40) and how they celebrate success (11:21). Julie has more to say about the exciting, technical world of dental products (12:33) and the importance of working outside of a family business first to validate your own capabilities (15:25).

Susan and Lauren ask Julie to talk more about preparedness (16:30) and how to adapt to the gravitas of a new leadership role (17:49). Julie compares balance in life to filling up all your “glasses” from a limited water jug (20:02) and gives advice on how to set boundaries (21:19). The discussion again comes back to “authenticity” and being who you are (22:49). Julie shares more insight into her evolution as a leader (25:350), her stick-to-itiveness (26:30) – yes this is a real word – and what support looks like for her (29:35).
