Welcome to my toolbox!

Whether you are at work, at home, socialising or even by yourself, you lead everyday. Your choice of words, your emotions, your thinking and perspective of life/things are directly and indirectly leading you and others around you.
So, what does it really take to LEAD? It's not about giving instructions or directions. The critical element in leading lies within the Environment you can choose to create for your team (yes, I'm referring to mindset here):
In summary, it's the art of knowing what matters most to your team(s) and allowing them to achieve those. When your team is in this space, they will continue to grow and bring results to the organisation. The Environment element is the one very important element that is often forgotten and I wonder why organisations face challenges in retaining good employees! My only wish is for organisations to invest time and effort in this element and bring it to live again because this is the heart of the business!
I get that numbers are important in businesses but what is numbers when organisations do not have a great team. In this modern business world, the art of selling and continuously achieving results comes from the heart that create outstanding customer experience. When a business opportunity is won, this is not the end of the customer relationship, it is just the beginning of the customer experience journey!
For those who are not leading a team just yet, this is still very applicable to you, your family and your social circle. How you do one thing is how you do everything. All you need to do is relate it to your own world because it is not about leadership but the mindset and heart to lead! And very often, the best place to start is from within!
