When Mom’s a CEO

Imagine what your life would be like if your mother was the CEO of a global company. She could provide the type of advice that would propel your career and help you overcome the many stumbling blocks that keep people from fulfilling their full potential at work. That’s the idea behind the book Mom.B.A.: Essential Business Advice from One Generation to the Next by Karyn Schoenbart, CEO of The NPD Group, a global provider of information and advisory services.

Passionate about coaching others to greater levels of achievement, Karyn wrote Mom.B.A. to give others a competitive advantage. The book is based on the real-life business lessons Karyn amassed during her career and is a practical guide on everything from effective first impressions and workplace politics to relationship development, skill-building, and priority-setting.

In this interview, Karyn talks with Tony Vlahos, host of ExecuNet Master Class, about what she’s learned about dealing with angry people, difficult bosses, building relationships, inspiring your team, continuing to learn even when successful, having it all, and more!
