Oct 11, 2022

At the heart of Sheryl Palmer’s leadership style is just that—heart. “You don’t know what makes people tick until you take the time to care,” she said.

Episode 11

Sheryl Palmer, president and CEO of Taylor Morrison homes

Sheryl Palmer is not only the president and CEO of Taylor Morrison homes, she is a beloved, inspirational leader in the home building industry. She was a 2021 winner of the Heathstone Humanitarian award, and it is easy to see why. Palmer is a people-centric leader who knows the importance of building a strong team and stepping back to let them shine. She values confidence and humility along with her why-not-try-it attitude that has opened many doors for her throughout her career.

“I’m always going to make sure the people I’m surrounded by are so much smarter and better than me,” said Palmer. “I think that’s a challenge for a lot of leaders – they feel like they have to have all of the answers – I have so few of the answers! I have great talent around me.”
