What kind of mindset do you find in environments where talented people feel most at home?

What is the right combination of talent and grit to succeed?

The talent as an individual who with the right skills can make it anywhere. Talent as a part of an environment which is aware of his or her importance and provides the opportunity for talent to grow and develop. Talent as a generator of societal progress.

"With over 20 years of experience in sales, marketing, and management I have learned that talent without nurturing is wasted potential. That is why Goodyear as well as I personally are dedicated to supporting talented individuals through mentorship and creation of possibilities for them to gain hands-on experience."
