Article – Key Tips For Future Business Leaders
By ANGELA GUIDO
“Leadership and learning are indispensable to each other.”
-John F. Kennedy
Being a leader today has a far different definition than what it used to. As Ghandi said, “leadership at one time meant muscles; but today it means getting along with people.” Nowadays, advancing your career dreams requires far more intellectual prowess… And the knowledge that mistakes and wrong turns are inevitable. It’s a process with which all innovative leaders are familiar, and should be cherished as an opportunity to learn about yourself, your abilities, and where you see yourself in the future.
Luckily for all aspiring business leaders, Angela Guido has assembled 4 Key Tips For Future Business Leaders. She is the co-founder of MBA Career Coaches, an organization that provides structure and support for clients as they deepen their self-awareness, business relationships, and career choices.
Rather than focusing on elevator pitches and get-rich-quick techniques, Guido outlines the methods that allow you to be introspective about your leadership role. This includes a strong emphasis on when and where you want to create the most impact. “If your career is a ship adrift in a vast ocean, self-awareness constitutes the rudder.” says Guido, “At MBA Career Coaches, we do a lot of work with people reflecting on their experiences and values, so that they can make choices – both big and small – that reflect those values.”
