DAVID ARMANO | Why mentoring is the leadership of the future #027

David Armano is a mentor. Yet, a mentoring role wasn’t something he initially quested, but came to discover.  It was supposed to be his opportunity to give back. He never imagined the impact it would have on himself.

David is the global strategy director for Edelman. His marketing genius has worked with HP, Kellogg’s, eBay, Adidas, Hilton, and many more. In addition, he’s contributed articles to the Harvard Business Review, Bloomberg, Businessweek, AdAge, Adweek and others.

On this show, we talk about millennial leadership, the dual nature of mentoring, and getting your eyes off of yourself.

In This Episode, You’ll Discover:

  • Trying to maintain a sane personal life amongst a busy work schedule
  • Learning an immigrant, hard work mentality
  • The epiphany of you having to seek it
  • Organic nature of mentoring, reaching beyond professional to the personal
  • Millennials are often hungry to learn, craving relationship
  • Being generous with others, takes the focus off yourself
