According to Forbes, there are several qualities necessary to become a great leader. This includes having faith in your beliefs, making hard choices when required, knowing your team members and earning their respect, having a clear vision, and most importantly – realizing that people are the key to success.

On this episode of Knowledge is Power, host Brandon Pfluger is joined by Kloudspot CMO, Karyn Scott, to discuss pivotal moments in her career. From what has shaped her into the leader she is today to how she continues to pay it forward to the next generation by making sure they are equipped to continue to push the industry forward, Scott brings over 20 years of experience in technology, including stints at Salesforce, LogicMonitor, Cisco, AppDynamics and Flexport.

Scott joined Kloudspot, a leading situational awareness, and intelligence solution company, in August to bolster the company’s efforts to take AI-driven transformational customer experiences mainstream. When talking about the advice she passes along when mentoring her management team or younger professionals, one tip truly stands out—taking risks.

“Taking risks, especially in the world of business—as long as they’re calculated and data-driven risks—only good can come of it,” explained Scott. “And the people that really grow into leadership positions and even individual contributor positions that do quite a bit—not everybody wants to be a manager or a leader, but you can still make your mark in many ways—is finding a way to take those calculated risks.”
