Leadership Excellence

Leadership Excellence

May 16, 2010 – Sun.Star Cebu

When he is most down, a person can stay at the bottom or rise and be the best he can be.

The two latest recepients of the People Enhancing Opportunities Propelling Leadership Excellence (PEOPLE) award chose the later and succeeded.

For Rey Misoles, success is something one has to work for. Being passive will not get anyone anywhere.

After graduating from accountancy in a (university) in Southern Leyte, he took the job as a contractual utility clerk in Pepsi Cola, a job he knew he didn't want to have for the rest of his life.

From the beginning, he knew he was born to lead.

He originally took up electrical engineering but had to quit school because of lack of funds. He enrolled in a (out-of-school-youth) program of Don Bosco where he was trained to use machinery.

He then landed a job as an assistant to a mill operator. But the job drained him physically. After a month, he found out he had a lung problem that could lead to tuberculosis. He was advised to stop working for a year.

He decided to study and take up accountancy, and that was where it started.

He recalled being asked in a job interview by the supervisor where he sees himself in five years. Misoles answered, "In five years, I will sit in a chair like that."

He did it in four years. He became a human resource manager in another company and sat in his dream chair. Now, he is the CEO of his consultancy group.
