Young entrepreneurs from around the world, who represent 17 different countries to include Brazil, Venezuela, Australia, England and many more. These young creative minds will be changing the world we live in. The students in this 6 week class are learning all the key components to starting and running a business from some of the biggest names in the Boston area.
I was brought in to speak about the key skills to outstanding leadership and share my experience as a female business owner. We started with a group coaching exercise, to get them to each list the leadership skills they already practice. I shared with them the cornerstones to outstanding leadership, from my book, Rethink Leadership.
We talked about raising our bar, raising our standards. Leaders expect more of themselves then anyone expects of them. Being a lifelong student to learning. Learning doesn’t end at graduation or when the bell rings. Everyday I learn something new about myself, others or the world I live in. What are you learning today?
Being a female business owner, I shared my biggest tip with the class. Niche! Know what you do better than anyone else and focus on that area. Your passion will shine through when you are focused.
It was an honor to have the opportunity to speak with these young future business owners and entrepreneurs. Each of them will become leadership role models, changing the world in which we live.
