How do you see your professional career until now?

I think that the most important is to put things in proper place. As the time goes on, I give more and more  a value to the human aspect of the people. Diligence, clarity, knowledge, and skills are very important to develop a career as a public director , but, moreover, it is more important to take into account the feeling and the sensations of the others. The team motivation is not possible if we do not pratctive empathy.
