I was chatting with a very successful person yesterday. She would define success as financial strength and making the world a better place. I would give her a high score on both.
That said, her career has been anything but a straight line. She has a mosaic career – many different wonderful elements that together make something truly great. So how did she create such a cool career with jobs (all within her company) that go from business development to head of diversity to foundation board chairperson? I believe there are two key things: first, she took each job seriously and did her best and second, she accepted opportunities that made sense to her – even if they didn’t make sense to anyone else.
She is a person of vision, courage, and an absolutely commitment to contribution!
Have a great day,
