To Become One of the 50 Most Powerful Women in Business….

Image…though I suppose this would be great career advice regardless of your gender, as offered by Charlene Begley during her UVM School of Business Dean’s Leadership Speaker Series, Ms. Begley offered the following:

  1. Be curious, listen and ask questions.
  2. Have a “Can-Do” attitude.
  3. Possess a bias for action.
  4. Meet your commitments, yet if it looks doubtful, communicate your status early and ask for help.
  5. Be decisive.
  6. Develop great presentation and communication skills.
  7. Know the “So what?” and always anticipate the next three questions.
  8. Surround yourself with a great team; solicit their input and share all the credit.
  9. Respect everyone and treat people well.
  10. Don’t take yourself too seriously – HAVE FUN!
