MANILA - In his three decades at Philam Life, chief executive officer Ariel Cantos rose from the ranks while paying close attention to how his bosses make decisions and communicate with their subordinates.
Cantos, who prefers to be called by his nickname, Aibee, says learning while on the job is "better than an MBA."
"It's inspiring people. It's challenging people to be the best that they can be because that's what I've also experienced from the time that I started in Philam up to this very moment," he tells ANC's The Boss.
Cantos says he is fortunate enough have employees who "put their hearts and minds into their work."
"I think all of this put together helped me to become who I am today," he says.
