I had the honor and the privilege to be invited to the Career Rockstars Podcast by Allisha Ali, PhD. See the links and the episode description below.
Meet Laurent Zecchinon, who has survived 3 job losses by practicing adaptability and decision making.
Laurent specializes in transforming individuals and organizations through a systemic and personalized approach inspired by best-in-class practices in business, military, sports, and politics.
Laurent holds a Ph.D. in Veterinary Sciences and 2 Masters from the University of Liege, Belgium. With more than 20 years of experience in multiple environments holding several different posts from Science teacher to Lab Manager to Project Manager, it will be interesting to unveil his career path, which was certainly not a linear one. Whether you’re a Corporate Professional, Academic, or Entrepreneur, listen to find out what makes Laurent a Career Rockstar!
In this episode, we discussed whether a Ph.D. is overrated, especially in today’s self-education movement. The dilemma of choosing a career path, is there a right one? What to consider when transitioning from full-time employee to Entrepreneur- financial security or freedom to operate, and other pros/cons. What it takes to survive being fired not once but thrice! Laurent also stresses the importance of starting to invest early in your personal and professional development for accelerated results in both your career and overall quality of life. And listen to the end for some amazing celebrities he has met on his journey…
Thank you for listening and sharing your feedback and comments!
