My Leadership Principles
Lead with a strong point of view
Be visionary, inspire my team in new directions. Ensure mission and vision are clear and that the team has a way of connecting with them.
Clear is kind
Give fast, clear feedback. Remember that feedback not only leads to better outcomes, it presents learning opportunities.
Protect my team
Protect from external pressures so that they feel safe, supported and able to do their best creative work.
Be present, stay engaged and remain at eye level with the team.
Ask more questions
I don’t always have the right answers, but I can always ask great questions. Remain curious and approach things with a beginners mindset.
Say no more often, don’t overcommit. Deflect rather than absorb some of the external pressures. Make space to reflect and renew. My team deserves me at my best.
We spend a large part of our daily lives together – enjoy it. Being creative is part of who we are – celebrate it.
Take risks, fail fast, learn faster
Hypothesize and experiment to get to better solutions, faster. Don’t be afraid to fail.
I have a unique skill set and perspective. Remain my authentic self and don’t let go of my values and my mission. I am a work in progress.
