What is your favourite piece of leadership advice, or quote?
Start with the end in mind
If you know what you want something to look like in the end it’s easier to build it along the way. I can adapt this to any problem, challenge or issue I have in life.
What does success look like with a client?
To me success looks like a team that has a clear sense of purpose. In other words, the organization’s strategies, capabilities, and behaviour are aligned to their purpose. In addition, staff feel safe enough to speak up and have genuine conversations with each other about behaviours that are either allowing them or preventing them from becoming the team they want to be.
