Time is of the essence. Literally.
João is a Civil Engineer who was happy with his skills until of late. While he had mastered the technical aspect of his career, he felt he lacked the knowledge when it came to management. With the support of his current company, he enrolled the Executive MBA
João values time in its many forms, from punctuality to efficiency. Perhaps that comes from his early days as a competitive swimmer, when every second counts. You could say that sport has taught João a lot. From hard work to competition and teamwork, he also appreciates the sense of comradeship he got from playing rugby.
If work took João to Africa, he took himself to all other continents before he even reached 30. That has given him a sense of understanding of other cultures and compassion towards people. That reflects on his view of leadership and, as he aims to become the type of dedicated manager that focus on honesty and other people. And if all this sounds too serious, let us tell you that João is not without a great sense of humour.
