My 5 Biggest Lessons from Successes and Challenges of 2018.

What an interesting blogging year 2018 was! Thank YOU for being such an amazing tribe. Your support and feedback helped me think and keep moving forward with my personal development journey.

I’m sharing with you here the 5 biggest lessons I learned this year

 1.- Leader without a story

“Where there’s no vision the people perish” – Proverbs 29:18

Leading is complex, difficult and I can feel alone and misunderstood quite often, but with Queen, one of my favourite all time I’ll never walk alone!

One vision - How to create our vision for an Agile team; Queen inspires me!

 2.- I don’t have the presence

“We, people in the Globalization/Localization tend to transition to leadership position. We start as translators, QA testers …. And we truly struggle to get in a leadership mindset”

4.- Culturally intelligent innovation begins with changing our impulse from Why can't you see it like I do? To help me see what I might be missing! - Livermore-

5.- Begin with the end in mind – Stephen Covey
