Three keys to success

From an executive of a well-known corporation

  1. Nurture your differentiators. Know what makes you unique, and leverage it. Build on those strengths, and draw distinction from them.

  2. Cultivate your networks. It is still all about whom you know, but true leadership is not about politics: it is about knowing how to find who knows what you need to know.
  3. Take risks! Pick your favorite adage: Grow or die. Let go of the tree trunk and grab the fruit at the end of the limb. You miss 100% of the shots you never take. Regardless, it's about extending yourself in ways others will not, and finding success in the process.
