This week, the marketing interns had the opportunity to chat with Mark Fields, president of The Americas at Ford Motor Company. He offered us some advice that applies not only at Ford Motor Company, but also in our daily lives:
- Feedback is incredibly important. As tough as it is to hear, it’s best to know your pitfalls and strengths.
- “How you ask is how you listen.” You have to know how to ask a question and you have to be able to listen to how people respond to what you’re asking.
- Leadership is about listening and observing. Without observing and listening to those who you manage, you’ll never grow and become a better leader.
