Thought Leader Life 060: Guest Paula A. Garcia

Our co-host for the month of February is Lori Ruff (@loriruff) and our guest for February 14 was Paula A. Garcia (@_Paula_Garcia).


Paula Garcia

In this episode, Mitchell and his co-host for the month of February, Lori Ruff (@loriruff), hang out with Paula A. Garcia (@_Paula_Garcia), the VP for Marketing at the Boston Chapter of ALPFA: Association of Latino Professionals For America ( The conversation touches on the advantages of being part of a volunteer service organization and how leaders should see the value of professional development and employee empowerment. Lori explains how joining a volunteer service organization like ALPFA: Association of Latino Professionals For America can bring value to Latino professionals, helping them do their job better. Volunteer service and professional development is investing in yourself, making you worth more to others so they will invest in you, keeping you in the loop and on the playground. Paula notes that some leaders of today take more time to see the value of investing in one’s self. She hastens to add that, as leaders, they are also required to think about what more you can do not just for yourself, but for the world.

Being the leader at your own company, it’s important to appreciate the tangible things. All interactions and networking within a volunteer service organization can put you a step ahead. For Paula, the goal of leaders is to find other people who speak that same voice and share your passion. Lori adds that you should surround yourself with people who really invest in their success and lead you to also invest in yourself and develop your leadership more. Both Paula and Lori agree that leaders are typically visionaries and that they should be able to share their stories and struggles of how they got where they are. This is because leaders should “send the elevator back down” for those who need advice and monitoring.
