A powerful speech delivered by Xerox CEO Ursula Burns to MIT students. It is a long video but if you can hang in there, you will definitely find it worthwhile!
Her key points:
- Be authentic (yes!)
- Listen enough to hear what people really want (what they say and don’t say)
- Get followership
- TAKE A STAND. Declare something. Saying what you think sets a stake for people to either argue or support you (LOVE this!).
- Have objectives and be able to measure success
- HAVE FUN. If you hate walking in the door everyday, Quit.
Continue to be great!
