Some tips-
1. “To achieve work-life balance, do not compromise. Be intentional about what you put in the calendar”
2. “When people give you a role that has never been occupied or ask you to do something that has never been done, it means they have a very high view of who you are”
3. “Know the adjectives that are consistent to the seat you are occupying and the seat you are aspiring to get to. Pick three adjectives that absolutely consistent about who you really are, three adjectives that are valued in your organisation; where they intersect is the character that you should project”
4. “You can train people to think about you in the way that you want them to think about you. How people perceive you, will determine how they relate to you.”
