Chapel Hill, NC (PRWEB) June 27, 2014
Altos Ejecutivos, the Colombia office of Career Partners International, hosted an event to celebrate 21 years of business success.
Ines Pardo, equity owner and Senior Manager at Career Partners International - Colombia, in partnership with Patricia Tovar, Director of the Camara de Comercio Colombo Britanica, invited Jorge Silva Lujan, General Manager of Microsoft – Colombia, one of the world’s major technology leaders, to speak about the requirements needed to be a true leader in an organization. Approximately 100 industry leaders interested in leader development and developing the cultures and values within their organizations attended the event.
Silva Lujan shared his belief in the ability of people to lead by principles, such as honesty and transparency, and to recognize and develop leadership skills in others. Throughout his career, he worked directly with human resources leaders to develop his management teams and generate outstanding business results in the Latin American Region, positioning him as an effective leader in his industry. He also provided attendees with insights on clear communication, effective feedback and increased awareness about the need for leadership by people of integrity who lead their lives in a balanced manner - professionally, personally and spiritually.
The presentation broached many topics, including hackers, Windows 8 and the alliance between Microsoft and Nokia. Silva Lujan stressed the need for businesses to recruit talented individuals and provide them with technical training and leadership development to gain the skills needed to succeed – a philosophy shared by Career Partners International. These individuals often rise to become successful leaders who generate results in dynamic organizations which are often characterized by changing, very demanding and yet productive company cultures. He further emphasized the importance of focusing on work-life balance, quality relationships and organizational values.
“We’re excited about our 21 years of success in Colombia and to celebrate this occasion with Mr. Silva Lujan’s presentation,” said David P. Hemmer, President and CEO of Career Partners International. “Jorge is a tremendous leader and Microsoft exemplifies how the values and culture of an organization play an integral role in the success of both the organization and its employees.”
