Posted on Wed, Jan, 12, 2011

Lauren Zalaznick, President of Women & Lifestyle Entertainment Networks, NBC Universal, was told by her fist boss at VH1, “Throughout your career, you’re going to hear lots of feedback from show-makers and peers and employees and bosses.  If you hear a certain piece of feedback consistently and you don’t agree with it, it doesn’t matter what you think.  Truth is, you’re being perceived that way.”  With this advise, Lauren changed from a person know for making snap decisions to someone who’s viewed as thoughtful and analytical.
