Anatomy of a Young Boss: The Makings of a Leader

THE EYES: Vision and Foresight

  • Vivid imagination. Strong tenacity. No boundaries. All of these factors play a part in a young boss’ day-to-day vision. The idea that one is “too young” or “too fresh” to embark on revolutionizing an industry, heading a major project or spearheading a movement is a farce. They move with purpose and plan accordingly.

Be in tune with your own inner confidence and power that guides you to make your dreams a reality.
