Decoding Destiny: Soundbites from the C-Suite

Episode 04: Reprogram Yourself But Don’t Lose Yourself

June 2, 2021

On today's episode of Decoding Destiny, Irina meets with Eugina Jordan, a Russian immigrant who started her career as a secretary and has gone on to become the VP of Marketing for one of the major telecom industry disruptors in the country. 

Irina and Eugina discuss how to understand your cultural upbringing and how to "reprogram yourself" in the workplace while staying true to yourself. In a world where borders have been blurred and people are working together from all parts of the globe, it is so important to be aware of cultural norms that maybe don't align with the norms we might be used to. How do you adapt without losing your mojo?
