When talking about business schools, it seems people automatically link it with making money. But here, I learn to be yourself and money will follow.
“Leadership” is the buzz word in business school. The course Advance Leadership is recommended by a lot of students. I do not consider myself a leader type of person, but after taking this class, I now feel every one is obligated to take the lead. Not everyone can become a CEO, but every one of us is the leader of our own life. I wrote my assignment not for the score, but how I can be an authentic leader, who I am and want to be, and how I want to be remembered after I die. In class, we listened to stories of CEOs, for example, one who gave every employee a milkshake because he didn’t get one when he started to work at a restaurant and another who committed himself to people’s dignity because he was looked down upon by a rich teenager when working at a car wash. We also heard stories from our classmates, such as one who is determined to be a successful woman in business despite disdain from a Catholic family and one who always gives credit to other people’s devotion because of his own bad experiences.
Any business or profession is just part of our life. What really matters is to live our life, have a positive impact on others, and make a difference.
