Give it a shot.

Give it a shot, Neha Gupta Mallik - Pass The Mic

“Don't limit yourself to the possibilities that are out there… As the opportunities come about, at least give it a shot. Whether they are something that you had perceived for yourself or not, and build confidence while you're at it.” – Neha Malik

Be true to yourself.

Highlight: “Always be true to yourself. If you know that you made a mistake, accept it. Own up to it. Learn from it. But always bring it out, because otherwise it catches up to you.” – Neha Malik

Show confidence.

Show confidence, Neha Gupta Mallik - Pass The Mic

Highlight: “I really had to show that confidence in myself, because being a female entrepreneur or individual out there in the workforce… it wasn't so common in leadership roles. And I think that gave me that push and the drive to say, ‘I can do it. If anybody can do it, I can do it.’” – Neha Malik

Know your strengths and weaknesses.

Know your strengths and weaknesses, Neha Gupta Mallik - Pass The Mic

“Be very mindful and aware of what your skills are, what your strengths are and weaknesses are, so you can play off each other, and not be afraid of asking the right questions, not be afraid of saying that you don't know, that you're willing to learn.“ – Neha Malik

Reach out and ask people.

“Always reach out and ask people if they would be willing to share their knowledge, because that's not something you learn in school. And what experience brings and what people can bring is significant.” – Neha Malik

Take a step back.

Highlight: “Don't ever take the quick decisions when you're in the heart of the emotions. Always take a step back and think through it… Take a step back and really see the big picture, not what you see in the moment, because there's obviously often two sides of the story.” – Neha Malik

Neha inspires us to reimagine what we can achieve as we push ourselves to learn and grow. For more inspiration from amazing female leaders, check out our Pass the Mic content page.
