Talent and tenacity is an attractive, powerful, and fabulous combination. In women, it is even more attractive. When we face setbacks, we look for reasons; on our dark days, we even look for excuses. But, Uma Gupta says that if and when we snap out of excuses and blame, our talent and tenacity become powerful catalysts for change both within ourselves and in the world in which we live. Talent and tenacity should go hand in hand, says Uma Gupta. Because one without the other limits us in many ways. Being tenacious, without being purposeful, limits us. Being talented without being tenacious also limits us. So Uma says that talent and tenacity will win the day. Uma Gupta is the President and CEO of Global Cube Consulting, a managment consulting company that focuses on strategic planning, organizational development, and women in higher education.
