Hi Guys,

just got an invitation for interviews, I applied in round 3 and I am from Germany. I was a bit surprised as I expected the invitation in April as stated on the website, but I am obviously happy anyways. Finally good news after being dinged at HBS/Stanford. Anyone else invited?

Good luck to everyone!

P1 to P2 [#permalink] New post 20 Mar 2014, 19:00
FROM Insead Admissions Blog: P1 to P2
Image
Hello!


I finished exams, visited my special lady-friend in Shanghai (fiancée), started P2 classes, and attended some of the world’s top consulting companies’ campus presentations all in the space of a few weeks!

P1 was great. P2 looks even more awesome!

P1 takeaways:

•             I will find a job…patience is a virtue. My P1 internship  hustling has started to pay off, so I need to relax and enjoy the process.

•             I can’t do everything….INSEAD has a truly overwhelming number of opportunities, events, and attractions. I have a post-MBA strategy and I need to stick to it. While I would love to attend start-up presentations or every industry networking event, I have realized I need to commit to activities strategically.

P2 Goals:

•             Stay on top of course work

•             Hustle every company possible for a summer internship

•             Branch out from my social circle.

The start of P2 is both exciting and intense. With 6 classes instead of 5, the course load has increased and now all non-sponsored students need to hustle for jobs. There are corporate presentations and networking events literally every day. I’ve been sleeping in my suit and my 30 second “why Trey House” pitch is improving exponentially.

With 7 weeks to go until finals, we shall see if I am as upbeat after I endure this punishing P2. I’m already looking forward to a Thailand or Philippines break between P2 and P3.

No worries. I was on the waitlist so I know exactly how closely one would want to monitor the stats :) Give me a nudge if I forget to update next week.

Good luck!

Me, myself and I…discovering identity at INSEAD – part 1 [#permalink] New post 31 Mar 2014, 19:00

FROM Insead Admissions Blog: Me, myself and I…discovering identity at INSEAD – part 1
“Knowing yourself is the beginning of all wisdom.” ― Aristotle

Less than 100 days left of INSEAD. Reality is kicking in. Recruiters are milling all over campus. Suits and ties, groomed hair and go-getter heels have replaced the relaxed student attire of jeans and a t-shirt. All of a sudden I discover a new side to my classmates, another facet of their identities.

Identity. Such a powerful, yet very ambiguous, word. Our identity was created at birth, and has since that day been with us, wherever we go.

Still, when I think about my identity, it has a sense of unfamiliarity to it, like something unknown yet to be discovered.

Not sure if there is such a thing as the right time to discover yourself, but as we are running out of time at INSEAD, faced with those difficult questions about where we want to live, what job we would like and what makes us happy has at least prompted me to look inside for a guiding compass, a way to navigate this myriad of opportunities and choices.

What if knowing my identity and myself can shape the internal compass? If so, who am I? 

A few years ago I went through a major life change that forced to start exploring these aspects of myself, and it was probably one of the hardest, yet the most rewarding, experiences I have ever had.

As I have come to learn, there are two main parts of ones identity; the external and the internal.

Until a few years ago, the only way I used to see and describe myself was through my external identity. As I later came to realise, I meant I had left a significant part of who I was at the kitchen table every morning.

The external identity is composed of objective definitions like gender, nationality, work, hobbies and relationship status.

Image
Is this me?

For a long time I was Louise, the blonde, Swedish banker living in London, who spent her weekends travelling to new places or in the CrossFit gym. It was easy to define myself that way; I always knew how to introduce myself in a party or a business meeting. But as I soon came to realise, this was only half of the story of me.

Deep inside I felt that something was missing. I was always busy doing things, but yet not fulfilled. Because of the company culture and nature of my work, I fronted a composed façade and hid the bubbly, energetic and emotional sides of me.

At the time I didn’t understand that I had locked up aspects of myself behind bars. I was puzzled as to why my ability to be creative was diminishing and why I constantly felt fatigued. It is called [b]identity-depletion. [/b]

In addition to the lack of stamina, a little inner voice had awoken in my head, and I couldn’t ignore it.

It told me to go and change the world and leave a legacy. I suddenly understood knew that my career as a banker was never going to get me there. It was an excruciating, but at the same time a revealing aha-moment.

I knew I had to break free.

I had to embark on the journey of finding out who I really was, and how I was meant to live. The only problem was that I didn’t know how to start.

I so came across an incredibly inspiring TED talk by Janine Shepherd, the Australian Olympic athlete who had a car accident and became paralysed. She talks about the total and excruciating feeling of loss and despair that immerses her when she realises that her body is completely broken. Not until she managed to let go of her former identity captured in her body, she was able to rebuild herself and become a professional pilot. She says: “When you let go of what you are, you become what you might be. Flying is the ultimate feeling of true freedom.”

I had to push aside this external identity, so I could find out who I really was.

I suddenly found a source of tremendous creativity from within. Over the course of a few days, I had resigned from the Bank, my relationship fell apart and I had given up my apartment in London.

All of a sudden I had nothing but a vision and a blank canvas.

With no external identity to lean back on, I started for the first time to explore this deeper part of my identity. Who was I, really? I figured that if I could answer those questions, I would be able to identity environment that would make me happy and fulfilled. Simply, where I could be myself. To get inspiration, I started to think about times in my life when I had been really happy, and what made those moments so great. This gave me clues about what really defined me.

I started by writing down words that described how I saw myself and I asked me friends for their views. Some of the words that came out where:

Global. Loving. Disruptive. Attentive. Loud.

Then I thought long and hard about what values were most important to me in life. What are my beliefs, which I will never compromise on, regardless of where I go or who I meet? They cemented how I wanted to treat myself and others;

1) Love 2) Justice 3) Generosity 4) Courage 5) Forgiveness

Finally, I wrote a mission statement about how I wanted to live. It came out like this:

1)   I live to serve other people without compromising on who I am

2)   I shall live with passion and purpose

3)   I will live a life without fear

4)   I will be grateful for what has been given to me

5)   I will let me heart guide my life

Whilst doing this, I realised that I actually knew all along what my identity was about. All I had to do was to ask myself the right questions.

Having it all on paper gave me an anchor, the sense of inner compass that I needed to navigate where to go next, and what decisions to make.

For example, I now knew I wanted to work in an environment with a clear purpose. So I narrowed my options to social impact-related work.

A couple of my core values were love and generosity. So I crossed banking or any types of finance roles off my list.

“I want to live without fear.” What was fear to me? Pushing myself outside my comfort zone and embrace new geographical and cultural contexts. So I decided to focus on Africa.

Image
Is this me?

Not before long, an opportunity to go and work with leadership development at the grassroots of Africa came up. I didn’t have a doubt in my mind. I wholeheartedly knew I was meant to go there.

The personal gain from attaining my goals and working in tune with my capabilities and values has been invaluable in every way. All of a sudden, my head and heart were linked up and life seemed seamless. Easier somehow. Happier.

At INSEAD, we have this wonderful opportunity to explore ourselves. Away from our familiar habitats, we are no longer constrained by the characteristics of our external identity.

In a truly global environment like business school, it shouldn’t matter which country you come from or where you used to work. What truly matters is that you represent yourself and stand up for what you believe is right.

As we are approaching the end of our wonderful journey at INSEAD, we are faced with those significant questions. Where do I want to live? What kind of working environment would make me thrive? Those questions can seem daunting, but instead of looking to what everybody else is doing, giving time to introspection can really help unpicking some of those questions. Like peeling layers off an onion, what sits at your core?

Image
The new me?

_____________________________________________________________________________

In my next blog I will share thoughts on how I have seen my identity evolve during INSEAD, and how I now stand somehow similar yet different; looking at my future post-INSEAD.
