The WSJ recently made its annual list of 50 Women to Watch, and taking the number one spot was Angela Braley, CEO of WellPoint Inc. As chief executive of the largest health insurer, her place at the top of the list goes to show how important the enormous issue of health care will continue to be in the near future.
There was a Q & A session during the Women Leading Business Conference, and I think the executives' advice for young women is pretty motivating. While they don't offer life changing advice or offer a specific recipe on how to rise to the top, their words might just remind you of how you want to portray yourself at work or why exactly you've been working so hard. To check out what advice they have just read more.
My favorite piece of advice came from Mary Sammons, Chairman, President and CEO of Rite Aid. She said,
Get out of your comfort zone. Anytime you have a chance to take on something new and different, you'll learn from it and are stronger, and you'll be a stronger person. Even if it doesn't work out the way you want it to, you'll be better prepared for the next thing. So take on the tough thing that comes along."
Amen, Mary. Did she motivate you or did another speaker inspire you more?
