Left Handed CEOs Share Career Advice
Per the Chicago Tribune, any google search about lefties and you’ll be confronted with lots of studies. They’re more creative. They use both sides of their brain more fluidly. They tend to be better at multitasking. The list goes on — and science has plenty to conclude about lefties. Though your dominant hand likely has little to do with your performance reviews (and hey, chances are slim your boss even knows if you’re right or left-handed), this estimated 10 percent of the population approaches work differently. Or rather, because of how they’ve adjusted to life in a world designed for righties, they’ve learned different strategies for success.
Regardless if your hand gets smudged when you write on a whiteboard or not, these smart nuggets of wisdom from left-handed CEOs are beneficial to any career:
