A Corporate Leadership Journey Built on the Strengths of My Hispanic Heritage04/06/2015 03:39pm
The CHL Academy experience was in a way a coming of age moment for me. I never really gave any thought to the idea that my Hispanic heritage had been so instrumental in my personal journey through corporate America. While I have always been keenly aware of my hispanicity and how I define myself within its context, I had never really reflected and identified how it affected, shaped, and continues to shape my management style. There are leadership programs that focus on leveraging strengths, but CHL Academy has afforded me, for the first time in my professional career, an opportunity to personally delve into, and conclusively identify the genesis of my ability to lead. Through CHL Academy, I was able to see clearly how and why my background was a breeding ground for honing my skills as a leader.
