Emerging Leader Spotlight: Sandra Veszi Einhorn

Every month we invite an emerging leader we admire, to share her leadership journey. We ask her to explain how she achieved her current position, what obstacles she encountered on her climb, as well as tips for how to be a rising woman of influence.

This month we shine the Emerging Leader Spotlight on Sandra Veszi Einhorn, Executive Director at Rebuilding Together Broward County, Inc. Since joining the non-profit, she has strategically positioned the organization as a local leader in neighborhood revitalization, community partnerships, and sustainable housing.

Sandra Venszi EinhornFavorite leadership quote: “Don’t be intimidated by what you don’t know. That can be your greatest strength and ensure that you do things differently from everyone else.” ― Sara Blakely, Founder of Spanx.

What is the most important thing you have learned that has been critical to your career success?
Talk less and listen more. Constantly read and learn about anything related to your field.

Find out who some of the best people are in your field, follow what they do, and find an opportunity for them to get to know you. One of the best things you can be is an asset to someone you aspire to be like.

What tools or resources have you used that have been crucial to your success?
I am always looking for opportunities to network with influential members of my community. I take so much away from each conversation and it always helps me tweak my leadership skills to better serve my organization.

What steps are you currently taking to improve yourself, professionally?
I try to participate in as many leadership courses, trainings, seminars, etc. that I can fit in my schedule. I am currently enrolled in Leadership Broward, and the Jim Moran Small Business Executive Program. I am also about to start the American Express Leadership Academy.

What are some top tips you can recommend to other women who want to be recognized as a high potential emerging leader?
Be confident in yourself. Find out what your strengths are and become even better at them. Accept the things you don’t excel at and give others the chance to shine. You don’t have to be everything to everyone.
