“As a leader, your mood counts for at least 50% of the mood of your team. How you emotionally respond to failure, setback and disappointment will be emulated by them”

Create a Space

When executing change, the sound of success is honest conversation. It’s the leader’s job to create a fear-free space for it to happen.

Remove Blame Culture

“We only use blame in the event of gross negligence or malice – everything else is a learning opportunity.”

develop a growth mindset

“How a team learns its ‘hard lessons’ and adapt behaviour accordingly is hugely consequential to it’s success or failure.” 


“Building and maintaining trust is key to leading a team through change. No Trust, No Mandate.”


“Mature leaders create a culture of ownership and strive to change from a heroic to servant leadership approach”
