Dickson Tang, Speaker and Author of “Leadership for future of work: 9 ways to build career edge over robots with human creativity,” reminded us that we are all born creative. Unfortunately, traditional schooling sometimes stifles this quality. His advice is to always look for ways to inspire creativity, lead in a positive manner, and give space to make mistakes for the best path for growth.
Focus on Quality.
It’s not about the sheer numbers but the depth of your connections that creates true impact, explained Erica Dhawan, Keynote Speaker on Collaboration & CEO at Cotential. It’s important to network and build teams with quality. Look to combine knowledge, ambition and human capital to exponentially improve. She also reminded us to always be patient, adaptable, and consistent over a long period of time. When your team knows what to expect, they will follow by example.
Continue to learn.
Meagen Eisenberg, Chief Marketing Officer at TripActions and successful startup executive, shared important factors when it comes to scaling a company – people, process and technology. This nicely aligns with important leadership and career growth factors. Always ask questions to fully understand your customers’ wants and needs, for example. If you continue to connect with those actually using your offerings and keep an open mind to learn in the evolving environments, you will be more successful in achieving your end goals in business and personally as a leader.
We’ve also heard some interesting news commentary and healthcare trends this past month. Be sure to check out the interview with Heather Clancy, editorial director at GreenBiz, to learn about the latest in green tech and sustainability. Her interviews never disappoint!
