I am an energetic technology driven business leader with a people first mindset to achieving results. With over 20 years experience managing people, enhancing processes, and driving innovative technology solutions that contribute to firms’ bottom line both at large organizations and start-ups. I believe in hands-on involvement in leading change, starting with idea creation and problem scoping through successful implementation, support and everything in between. I celebrate diversity and have deep insight into different cultures. My successful leadership can be attributed to a few relatively simple guiding principles: • People: Boost workplace “meaning quotient” and inspire employees to perform at their peak by explaining why their work matters. • Business/Process: Decompose complex problems into simple measurable deliverables with associated cost to ensure that our business partners know the business drivers that support each and every request for funding. • Technology: Strategically balance innovation with regulatory requirements while maintaining total cost of ownership, hence presenting creative yet simple solutions that add meaning and value to all stakeholders.

Why learning to say 'no' is essential for overcommitted executives 

expert panel

Do you say yes to everything? Industry experts explain the benefits of clearing your plate at work. If you're just starting out in management, it's not unusual to constantly feel obligated to say yes. When duty calls and other colleagues are requesting your time and commitment to engage in an upcoming project or take over a daily task, it's a natural instinct for most people to lean in.  On the other hand, if you've been at your post for some time and have plenty of skin in the game, you've probably figured out by now that you can't take on everything without burning out. Learning to share growth opportunities with your staff members on a regular basis will also elevate your leadership skills and team relations in the workplace.  Leading experts from Fast Company Executive Board are no longer hesitant to turn down a project that may sound good on paper but has the potential to keep them sidetracked and further away from their objectives. Here, they share the benefits of learning to say "no" under pressure and how essential it is to improve your work-life balance and reach your goals.
