Nathan Sexton - December 2015
Nathan Sexton, vice president of business intelligence at Bellhops, wrote an article for Forbes' Leadership section on his experience with receiving a brain cancer diagnosis after a recent career change from financial services to a tech-based moving startup and how it made him a better leader and manager.
"So what did I learn through all this? How has my cancer battle made me a better leader and manager? I was forced to entrust my teammates with responsibilities I had once guarded jealously...Not only did I learn how to delegate, but also my health problems changed how I appreciated my relationships with my colleagues. I’ve now adopted an others-first mentality. When the average prognosis for your cancer is 15 months to live, you start doing things for other people and not just for your own benefit. Any craving for power I had before has disappeared. Today I simply do whatever I can to help my company be the best it can be."
