E26 - Being Kind: An Important Career Skill
Jun 16, 2020 Season 1 Episode 26
Purnima Thakre with Fran Sharp

Having worked at Bloomberg for 28 years, Fran Sharp is legendary at the organization. It is said that if you don’t know how to solve something, you go to Fran! 

Often we might feel like our softer skills, like caring about people, being nurturing or a “giver” might not be compatible with our career goals, or perhaps that they are skills more suited for our “personal lives” more than the “business world”. However, embracing these skills, along with our true selves (whatever that may be), can be powerful allies in building a career that we are truly satisfied with!  

In this episode of Empowered Women Series, we talk to Fran about the importance of knowing yourself and her simple yet extremely powerful framework to help you get there, as well as how embracing her own unique way of doing things, from always wanting to try new things to her innate gift for truly caring about others, has helped her build a life and career she loves.  

But the real question is: will she share the recipe for her famous brownies, with 8 different kinds of chocolate???
