Hassania’s guide to successful leadership

Hassania has gathered many insights to good leadership throughout the years. Her pieces of advice to women are:

  1. It is normal to make mistakes and it is a good thing. Our mistakes make us grow, our difficult path will make us grow;
  2. Take small steps to achieve your main goal. Organize your priorities and advance step by step;
  3. Opt for SMART (specific, measurable, attainable, relevant, time-based) goals.
