If youre offered a seat on a rocket ship, dont ask what seat. career growth. It doesnt make sense in a less hierarchical world. Climbing career ladder is not the saga in todays age. Go down a level to start a new field which is of your interest, look for oppurtunities,look for growth, look for impact, look for mission. Build your skills not your resumes. Evaluate what you can do not the title they are going to give you.

4. Leadership. Traditional Structures are breaking down, leadership has to evolve as well. From hierarchy to shared responsibility from command and control to listening and guiding.

Time has gone by where youll not be able to rely on what you are on the degree you hold..but you have to rely on what you know..

Your strength will come from building trust and earning respect.

Leaders need to speak and hear the truth.

As you graduate today..ask yourself. how will you lead.. Will you use simple and clear language? Will you seek honesty? When you get honesty back will you react with anger or with gratitude?
