Ateş Ataseven

“During my 15 years of experience in organizations, the common factor amongst those who had effects on my life permanently has been the effective leadership skills they displayed with their teams. I wholeheartedly believe that ‘those who cannot take control of their own lives cannot lead others’ lives.’ The reason for my existence in Management Centre Türkiye (MCT) is to develop myself regarding leading my own life, and on the other hand, to help people who work at the institutions where I serve to realize their differences and therefore be able to lead their own lives.”
