Every month we ask an emerging leader we admire to share what they’re doing to take the lead in their career. We invite them to share how they achieved their current position, what obstacles they’ve encountered on their climb, as well as tips for how to be a rising leader of influence. This month we shine the Emerging Leader Spotlight on Cara Wulf, Associate with McCarter & English, LLP.
Favorite Leadership Quote:
“What would you do if you weren’t afraid?” —Sheryl Sandberg, Lean In: Women, Work, and the Will to Lead
Favorite song that gets you motivated:
Although I can’t narrow it down to just one song, I do admit Lady Gaga does motivate me. Not only does she know her way around a hook, but her music helps me remember that sometimes, you just have to go for it – although, I’ll take a pass on wearing a dress made of meat.
What is the most important thing you have learned that has been critical to your career success?
Trust yourself, be confident in your abilities, and don’t let “Imposter Syndrome” hold you back. If you’ve put in the time to prepare, don’t let self-doubt keep you from speaking up and showing people what you know. You didn’t get where you are by accident – you worked hard for it, you deserve it, and you add value, so add it!
