Vodcast # 26 - Widening your Horizon in a Cross-Cultural Setting by Shiela Cancino
Ex-hedge fund manager Shiela shared with us her experience in the States 🇺🇸 working with visionary leaders who share long-term goals, while not losing focus to engage with teams in Asia, as well as each individual’s needs and concerns.
The power of listening 🎧 and engagement from the American project leaders made Shiela feel belonged & appreciated. It inspired Shiela to be able to work with colleagues from culturally diverse backgrounds as well. For her, she found a good move; but she didn’t stop finding better moves.
How did you find better solutions at your workplace and do you have a big picture 🛤️ in mind regarding the work you are doing?
