Oanh Phuong ’ s advice to aspiring managers and leaders
1 . Focus on what customers and key stakeholders ask of you .
2 . Embrace change . Change can be very positive , sometimes you need a catalyst . How you respond to and manage change helps define who you are .
3 . Foster an environment of openness , trust and respect . That will lead to great teamwork and collaboration .
4 . Never go it alone . Work with product , go-tomarket and channel teams , to help achieve scope and scale of any project .
5 . Balance customer needs , business needs and employee growth . You should always be in search of customer feedback for ways to improve , but you also need to stay in touch with talent growth needs and desires . Be on the lookout for new projects based on customer feedback that will allow your employees to grow and help drive the business .
6 . Remember , no task is too small . •
