Name: Victor Eduardo Nunez Gonzalez
Title: Marketing coordinator
I like connecting people to each other, to ideas and opportunities - especially when those connections result in positive change. I want to help brands tell their stories and inspire people around the world.
I work with a simple principle: learn everything. I'm a long-time student with a voracious appetite for new skills, fast-paced, collaborative environments, and personal evolution. I feel this constant urge to learn and improve.
The influence of technology is growing exponentially and that's why it's more important than ever to put people first. I believe that creating a thriving business is about treating users, customers and employees like human beings and helping them solve their biggest problems.
Thank you to the 2,000 leaders who’ve generously done the 7 Questions on Leadership!
I hope Victor's answers will encourage you in your leadership journey. Enjoy!
1. What have you found most challenging as a leader?
It was about starting to improve performance in communication, building a relationship of trust and mediating internal conflicts.
2. How did you become a leader? Can you please briefly tell the story?
I became a leader 4 years ago. I started out as a leader while still being a full-fledged, senior analyst... when a coordinator was hired for my area, he ended up leaving for company reasons and I was left taking on the biggest tasks and leadership of the team. This led me to study more and improve myself so I could become the leader I am now.
3. How do you structure your work days from waking up to going to sleep?
I usually wake up at 5am to go for a run with my brother, I get home and have breakfast and then be at work at 8am.
At work I like to organize my day using a digital calendar for meetings and a physical calendar to organize my day and my deliveries.
At 6 pm I leave work and return home by public transport so I can take care of my house and my cats and then go to sleep at around 8 pm for a new day.
4. What's a recent leadership lesson you've learned for the first time or been reminded of?
My biggest recent challenge was, in many ways, learning, developing empathy and becoming an example.
In my last job I had to learn how to create internal and external corporate events for the B2B market, something I didn't know much about and with my effort and study I managed to perform great events
5. What's one book that has had a profound impact on your leadership so far? Can you please briefly tell the story of how that book impacted your leadership?
The person who helped me to be a great leader was a former boss at work. |He recommended me to read the book "Brilliant Minds" by Alberto Dell´isola.
This book helped me a lot to get to know myself and how I can act like big businesspeople in the market.
6. If you could only give one piece of advice to a young leader, what would you say to them?
Learn to listen to your team
7. What is one meaningful story that comes to mind from your time as a leader, so far?
When my team and I achieved big sales when launching the website's e-commerce.
We were very happy because it was a huge challenge to get this approval from the directors in the middle of the pandemic.
To this day, e-commerce remains active and brings in positive revenue
