How Leaders Describe a Typical Day at Work

Workforce Development & Education Lead ,


My work revolves around partnering with educational institutions to have a meaningful effect on our workforce. I support our internship program, through which we partner with universities to bring talent here for internships. I spend time getting to know what those students are doing every day to make an impact and how I can share their stories. I also work with our high school graduate apprenticeship program, which lets students start working with Tesla while still pursuing their education.

Director of Learning & Development ,


On Monday, I may be talking w/ a manager about ways to grow their team and help identify their top 5 strengths. On Tuesday, I may be designing interactive and fun leadership sessions. On Wednesday, I may be facilitating a training for 50 employees. On Thursday, I may have a coaching session with an employee to work on developing their emotional intelligence. Every day is different & that is why I love what I do. I am able to implement creativity into everything that I do. I am never bored.
