WU Executive Academy Podcast: Know How to Succeed

Know How to Inspire

Adela Mehic-Dzanic on How to Advance Your Career through Meaningful Relationships

Last year, Adela Mehic-Dzanic set a personal goal of sharing her career story with 1000 women across the globe. As an expat, the Vice President of the Female Leaders Network and an MBA graduate, she definitely has learned a thing or two about networking. Hear how she created meaningful relationships out of regular networking situations to advance her career.

Mae Leyrer on Turning Changes into Opportunities and the Psychology of Turnarounds

Changes in the work environment can be scary for many people. Mae Leyrer discusses why fighting change is a waste of energy and why you should focus on searching for the opportunity that this moment can hold for you instead.

The change management expert also unhesitatingly shares her leadership strategies as CEO of a company with a € 50 million turnover. The company was dangerously teetering on the edge of bankruptcy before Mae turned it around.

The Global Executive MBA alumna is also a strong proponent of breaking familiar norms, such as the 8-5 workday.

On a more personal note, the mother of a son also shared stories from her time balancing her MBA with family responsibilities and expectations from her own executive mindset.

Peter Wilfinger on Operational Excellence and Harnessing the Power of the Alumni Network

Peter Wilfinger is the second Global Executive MBA graduate to be interviewed. The former president of our International Advisory Board (IAB) talks about the value of our alumni network (including networking tips!) and his interesting professional path up to Managing Director of Kardex Austria.
