Episode At a Glance: Boss Up With Ally Love
Ally Love is the CEO of Love Squad, Peloton instructor, host, inspiring speaker and Adidas global ambassador who can be seen wearing a multitude of hats, from the bike to the floor of the Brooklyn Nets arena, where she serves as host.
Ally was born and raised in Miami, Florida, and headed to New York City to pursue and eventually receive her Bachelor of Fine Arts from Fordham University and minor in Theology. As a dancer for the New York Knicks and participant in contemporary ballet companies throughout North America, Ally began exploring her career in performance.
In 2015, Ally founded and created the Love Squad community to empower women through the facilitation of motivational and educational conversations. Inclusivity, boldness, respect, and authenticity are the values that Love Squad strives to instill in women everywhere, both personally and professionally. Love Squad gets real about topics from negotiating salaries to fertility, tackles the realities of running a business while raising a family, and encourages women to boss up and take control of their lives.
As an empowering speaker and writer, Ally created her video series, The Basics of Bossing Up, where she discusses key virtues and presents tangible takeaways for her viewers to implement in their own lives. Instead of getting caught up in the buzzword of the moment, Ally takes it back to the basics of how to execute success, and ultimately create the life you want to live.
The Job of the Boss — It All Starts With You!
If you’re the boss, it’s your job to guide your team to achieve results. And, your relationships and your responsibilities at work reinforce each other positively or negatively, and this dynamic is what drives you forward—or leaves you dead in the water.
What’s more, your relationships with your direct reports affect the relationships they have with their direct reports, and your team’s overall culture.
Like it or not, your ability to build trusting, human connections with the people who report directly to you will determine the quality of everything that follows.
