I prepared for a career in business by taking management classes, obtaining a management degree and getting a job in management. My education was about me learning the basics of business so that I could be successful. In the early part of my career, I thought that my education and experience allowed me to tell people what to do and to see people as ‘functions’ and not as people. My work in the public accounting and business sectors afterward affirmed that it was all about creating shareholder value and ‘my’ success.
