Develop your skills, be curious and have fun. Those are some tips to young talents with leadership ambitions from Mikaela Warg and Selma Klipic at Sandvik ‒ two of Sweden’s Female Future Leaders, as nominated by the Swedish trade organization Ledarna.
How do you feel about being included on the list?
Mikaela Warg (MW), HR Director, Sandvik Rock Tools: It is so surprising and a bit unreal. I feel honored and very humbled to be included. There are so many amazingly talented women out there.
Selma Klipic (SK), Production Manager, Sandvik Rock Tools: I can only agree: I feel very honored and happy to be on the list among these amazing and inspiring leaders. The women included on this list are my personal inspiration and they create an arena for others to develop, grow and learn. I have followed Ledarna’s list for several years and it has made me so happy and motivated to see all these successful and talented women, so I still can’t grasp that I am part of the list.
Can you share a bit about your background, and why you choose to join Sandvik?
MW: I joined as a Global Graduate where I had the fortune to work in different parts of Sandvik around the world. Initially, I thought I was only going to stay for a few years but I am still here and a big reason for that is that I really enjoy working in the Rock Tools Division. We are on a really exciting journey with lots of opportunities – and challenges – and I have great colleagues to work with.
