In this episode, we were joined by Rebecca Zucker, the Founding Partner at Next Step Partners, an executive coaching and leadership firm in San Francisco, Los Angeles, New York. With a background in business and finance, Rebecca began career in investment banking, eventually branching into international strategic planning while working in Paris. When she returned to the US, she returned to banking in a training and leadership capacity, which led her towards her current path of executive coaching where she now focuses on the people side of business.
For the past two years, I’ve been volunteering coaching third and fourth year business students on how to create winning business strategies, for real companies, in the setting of a Western-Canada wide business case competition. (Sample business cases can be found here)
