MBAs – Every Day You Are a Role Model for Someone

MBAs will play many different roles during their lives. However, there is one role all MBAs have in common, one they play every day whether they want to or not. They serve as role models for others. In a previous MyeEMBA article, I suggested that knowing what roles people play provides a useful starting point for managing the daily and weekly activities of their lives so that there is a higher probability that they will achieve the things that matter most to them. However, most of us would not include being a role model as one of our priority roles. While we may have no choice about the people who select us as their role models, we can decide how we will behave when interacting with them. Intentionally deciding which behaviors to exhibit can have a significant impact on one’s career. This article describes two ways to proactively manage the behaviors that will make a difference.
