    Leadership Career Aspirations and the Importance of Mentors 

    Employees interested in leadership roles are often coached to hone their management skills. However, job descriptions and competency models for management roles are frequently too vague to help employees who want to know, specifically, how to be successful as a team leader or new manager. In this NY Times interview, Ilene Gordon CEO of Ingredion discusses the importance of having good people skills, drive, energy, tenacity, always having a Plan B, treating people well and being succinct and articulate in communications. Gordon shares stories that are useful for leadership career development in any organization.

      Excellent website you have here but I was wondering if you knew
      of any message boards that cover the same topics talked about in
      this article? I’d really like to be a part of online community where I can get feedback from other experienced individuals that share the same interest. If you have any recommendations, please let me know. Kudos!
