Linda Johnson Rice, CEO of the Johnson Publishing Company (which publishes Ebony and Jet) and independent director on the board of Tesla.
"Bringing in new people and having them help me create a vision and strategy for the company — and then allowing them to execute that — that's a tremendous value that you need to have in leadership. What I learned from my MBA is to think through strategies very clearly: What are your barriers, your competitors, what sets you apart and how to reach your goals.”
"If you have a vision, you have to make sure that you have thought it through, that you have used all the knowledge and resources of those you respect ... so you can hone that vision. Then be passionate, disciplined and willing to make changes as you go.”
