Min viktigste erfaring er…
In the beginning of my career, a mentor of mine told me that one of the most difficult things when you grow your career and leadership positions, is to stay connected with the teams and individuals that work with and for you. When you lose this foothold, you risk reducing the value of your leadership in multiple ways. I find that there is a lot of truth to this, and I try to set aside more and more time to stay tuned to personal and general insights of my colleagues/clients.
Mitt beste råd til unge ledere som leter etter nøkkelen til suksess er….
- Excel in your responsibilities/subject matter, but be relentlessly focused on generating value beyond ordinary. Don’t let your present context, position or roles limit your perspective.
- Excelling at leading others really requires that you know how to lead yourself. Get to know your purpose, strengths etc. and let this guide you. Always build and enable individuals around you -> be that your leaders, teams, clients or others.
- Combine your patience and your impatience – always know when to act on what.
