Q: If you could give just one leadership lesson that you’ve learnt over the years, what’d it be?
One of the key things for me is that IQ alone will not cut it. I think really good leaders don’t actually believe that they have all the answers. It’s really about having the humility to know yourself and what you can and cannot do. Personally, being a leader is about finding the vision of what winning looks like, the steps needed to get there and who do I need on my team to make it happen.
