If you had 5 minutes with an inspirational woman leader what could you find out? Throughout March, BNY Mellon's virtual mentoring series explores the career insights and candid perspectives of executives who have reached the corner office. These dedicated leader-coaches share many common traits and values, reflecting how BNY Mellon has become the Investments Company for the World.

EVP and Head of Global Financial Institutions - Client Service Delivery, Nancy Wolcott, shares five career tips and a bonus piece of advice for those who are just getting started in their career journey:

  1. Be attentive to and remember everyone you meet. Be present.
     
  2. Seek out critical feedback. It's easy to bask in the glow of compliments.
     
  3. Stand up to your mistakes and successes.
     
  4. Bring your A-game every day; take vacation if your A-game isn't evident.
     
  5. Whatever you choose to do, care deeply about it and do it with people you respect and enjoy. Life is short.

And, have confidence that you belong in that room. Exhibit your confidence by participating.
