“Learnings of a Leader – The Unknown Leader”
,,One child, one teacher, one book, one pen can change the world!”
Ciprian Radu talking to the students!
Last week on Tuesday evening, Ciprian Radu, our Associate Partner responsible for Sponsorship and Partnership and recently published author of the book Learnings of a Leader – The Unknown Leader, had the honour to be invited to talk to the students from different faculties from Babes-Bolyai University. It was a small forum where there were present students from different faculties such as: Law, Letters, Chemistry, Psychology, etc.
,,Not only was it a fun and positive experience but I’ve learned a lot of new things from the students…!” Ciprian Radu
The meeting that took place on the 19th of November 2019, gathered some of the best students from the Babes Bolyai university to talk together with Ciprian Radu about leadership, the values of leadership and about a few other concepts and values described in his book ,,Learnings of a Leader – The Unknown Leader”.
,,During the past years I have managed to do a lot of things in my career, I’ve been blessed with some amazing experiences that made me who I am today. Experiences that were good or bad but that made me the person who stands today in from of you. Starting from almost nothing I’ve managed to step up in the workplace hierarchy quite fast and most recently I’ve managed to publish a book about leadership and the values of leadership but not only. What does this say about me? Am I special? No, I am not. I am not special and most probably I will never be. I just know what I want and I give my 100% to make sure that I achieve my goals. I work hard for my dreams and try to not let failures stop me in my path.
,, If you have a noble dream, work for it!”
Ciprian Radu – Author ,,Learnings of a Leader – The Unknown Leader”
During his speech, Ciprian Radu, also talked about the guiding pillars of leadership and more exactly about trust, respect, empathy, and equity which were described short as T.R.E.E. It was a positive debate between what leadership means in the business world and in the academic environment. The debate was not about why trust, respect, empathy and equity are considered to be the guiding pillars of true leadership but more about why is this not something that is present in the academic environment too, where the competition is believed to be with your colleagues and not with yourself.
In the believes of the author, no matter the environment you should always thrive to be each day a better version of yourself by constantly challenging yourself and not by making someone else look bad or “helping” him fail. Even in a one to one competition, like fencing, where it is you and a direct opponent the first fight that you need to win are the years of tears, sweat and hard work plus you need to conquer the psychological battle with your own self and only than can you expect to have a chance with your direct opponent. So, at the end of the day when it’s all done if you think about it, in 99.99% of the times you are your only competition and a true leader knows that his fight is with himself and not with others.
,,I loved the fact that it was a dialog and not just me stating my ideas. I was challenged in my opinions.“
