“I’m now focused on trying to understand the human mind better,” stated Charo Santos-Concio, who, after retiring from company work, opted to revive her appearing profession and, on the similar time, tackle the position of an educator.
Inquirer Entertainment requested the previous CEO of ABS-CBN concerning the pursuits she is taking up and is having fun with now that she is not busy with workplace work. To this, she replied: “I’m so much into the study of (Swiss psychiatrist) Carl Jung and psychology because this makes me understand the human psyche better; it deepens my insights about humanity, why people behave a certain way.”
Jung, the founding father of analytical psychology, is acknowledged as one of the influential psychiatrists of all time. He advised that persona, amongst others, performs a task in influencing human conduct and that this may be handed down from technology to technology.
“The more stories I read, the deeper my insights become about humanity,” identified Charo, who just lately facilitated a persona growth workshop for younger and new Kapamilya skills. The attendees had been Francine Diaz, Charlie Dizon, Belle Mariano, AC Bonifacio, Barbie Imperial and Loisa Andalio, amongst others.
“I love coaching young talents,” added Charo, who can be president of ABS-CBN University. “I’m completely happy to have the ability to train them that it’s at all times good to make first impression; that good manners and proper conduct are a should for everybody who faces the general public recurrently, particularly these concerned in social establishments.
“While I enjoy giving them the tools, at the end of the session, I remind them of the most important thing … The outward beauty people see in them is just icing on the cake, what’s more important is their authentic character. It’s always important to show respect and consideration to people around you,” Charo advised reporters throughout a digital gathering organized by The Filipino Channel (TFC) and the monetary providers firm, Sun Life, to advertise the speak present “Shine On, Overseas Pinoy,” which Charo will probably be internet hosting beginning May 14.
Charo just lately received greatest actress for her efficiency in Carlo Manatad’s drama “Kun Maupay Man It Panahon.” While she didn’t immediately say what her subsequent undertaking could be, she stated she would love “to portray an empowered woman.”
She added: “I don’t overthink when it comes to accepting roles. When a story is offered to me, I try to see if I’m drawn to the character. I simply follow my gut.”
Empathy for others
On the qualities of robust ladies leaders, Charo stated: “A true leader has to have sincerity and the discipline to want to serve. Leadership is about service, not about power. How much of yourself are you willing to give up to serve the majority? Your answer to that is reflective of the kind of leader you are.”
“A strong leader also needs empathy for others. You should also be able to see yourself in the shoes of others,” added Charo. “Sometimes, we get blindsided by our various interests and beliefs. We have to understand things from the lens of the people we’re serving. We do what is needed even though, sometimes, we feel disappointed, we feel angry. We sometimes wonder why things are happening the way they are, but we need to understand.”
“Shine On, Overseas Pinoy,” which premiered final May 14 on TFC, is a chat present centered on serving to abroad Filipino staff (OFWs) and their households obtain a financially safe future by monetary training.

“I hope the program shows true appreciation for the struggles experienced by our OFWs. I hope their families will see this and appreciate all their sacrifices. I’ve spoken to a lot, and one or two of them cried while telling me, ‘I still have so much to attain for my family.’ I just hope that all their efforts will go to their goal of providing a comfortable home for their loved ones,” Charo identified.
The problem of doing this type of program, stated Charo, is ensuring she and her workforce have performed their analysis earlier than going to the set and interviewing their topics. “I can’t just sit there and ask the questions given to me without first trying to get to know the people I will be talking with,” Charo confused. “But, I found doing the whole thing enjoyable. I enjoyed listening to other people’s stories and their journey toward a transformative experience.”
She stated she as soon as considered leaving residence to strive her luck overseas, too. “It did cross my mind, especially after doing ‘Itim.’ My father allowed me to do only one movie. He advised me to find a regular job, being that I am a college graduate. He said I should put my education to good use, so I went to the United States and applied for a job in the United Nations. I was a fresh graduate, but I got accepted as an executive assistant. Soon after, I lost my father and this changed my life. I chose to pursue a career in the movies, and the rest is history,” she recalled.
Asked how she would outline success, Charo stated: “It’s when you already feel contented with what you’ve achieved. There has to be contentment … hindi pwedeng wala kang tinitingnang katapusan. Success is not based on all the accolades you’ve received. For me, it’s the safe haven you share with your loved ones at home.” INQ
