Wow, what a talk! Gloria Larson is a former politician and lawyer and in 2007, she was the first woman to be selected President of Bentley University – an american business school. I went to an inspiring event she held a few weeks ago in London . In fact, I got caught in rush hour and missed the first bit, but it was well worth persevering.
Gloria talked about her own very impressive leadership journey as well as wove in lessons from academic research. My take aways were:
- Go for the tough assignments- stretch yourself
- Make your partner a real partner at home
- Breadth of experience is an important as depth
- Do things you love- that passion is needed to go the extra mile.
