My dad is one of my biggest influences and as I grew up and listened to his advice there were lots of parts I took from him but one for leadership I hold dearest is:
  • As a leader I should always be training and empowering the people below me to do my job and lead.  That if I create and empower them our company/business/work will grow and be successful.  He always related to the idea of a football coaches coaching tree. Everyday leadership, building leadership within everyone.
  • Building culture and climate
  • Leading change
