Paving the Way for Next Gen Female Leaders

In case you missed my LIVE interview with the fabulous Laura Guio (General Manager, Global Cisco and Apple Alliance and California Senior State Exec, IBM), here are a few of the wisdom gems she shared:

  • You need to have this little voice inside of you asking: What do you stand for? What do you want to do? How do you want to operate? Then you're able to distinguish and make decisions based on that.
  • Women and the underrepresented minorities when you are trying to go after something, ask, you could be told no, but try again. Sometimes it takes multiple tries.
  • Take the combination of selling what you do know and being enthusiastic and energetic about what you want to learn.
  • You need to have some small aspect of what you know about a job. And then there will be some aspect of the job you don't know. You just need to want to know more and highlight that people.
  • It’s important to be self aware. Highlight what you like and what you're good at. If you don't like what you're doing, you're not going to be good at it.
