If you’re a new manager seeking career advice from senior leaders, you might not expect to hear that a business leader must “love people.” But that’s just one of the many insights found in AMA’s “Sound Advice” videos. This video series asks thought leaders and business professionals to offer their best piece of career advice to people stepping into leadership roles.
