An ispiring lecture on leadership from Marija Desivojević Cvetković, Vice President of Delta Holding for AMCHAMPS Class of 2015
The participants discussed with Marija Desivojević Cvetković of Delta Holding whether leadership is an elusive concept, a type of charisma with which people are born or a precisely defined combination of skills and knowledge which, if properly managed, produces the right results.
"Leaders are people with a clear vision,” Marija said. “They never give up on their vision and are passionate when dealing with it." She stressed the importance of developing one’s own leadership capacity, but also nurturing the people you lead. "Keep trying to provide your team members with a place, space and challenges that will help them grow. If you want to succeed in your business goals, you will do so only with the best team. "
Through interactive content and sharing her professional experiences, Marija counseled the participants to live their own values and thus be an example to others, to invest in building the trust of their team members, to learn from mistakes, reward the people around them and foster communication. "Successful leaders are primarily premium listeners, and listening skills are their main strength," noted Marija, adding that listening means not only to listen, but also to hear and to get to know the people you lead.
