New year, new goals but being a leader goes beyond making sure team goals are met. It is, in the words of Tacy Byham, global CEO at DDI, about “lighting a fire underneath their people – to get them going, manage their work, get all that done.”
In this special holiday edition of our HR Bulletin, we give recognition to the efforts made by these 10 seniors who left us with some pearls of wisdom to carry into the new year.
The atmosphere I consistently cultivate in each market encourages openness, creativity and inclusion.
Our people strategy is critical to our success. They are the heartbeat of the organisation and that is why it is essential to make them feel included in every possible way.
The idea that every employee must share a vision and sense of direction is very important.
You can’t be saying something and doing something else, then people would be left wondering.
One key factor that has contributed to our success is openness – and my definition of being open encompasses several areas. Firstly, we are open to diversity and culture differences.
The most valuable asset of any entity is its people. However, for such matters, there are always going to be some intricacies to navigate.
The aspect of being disciplined and good at execution, and being very creative is crucial in building a strong second and third line.
There really is no secret to success. It is lots of hard work and great planning.
It is essential to find work that is intellectually demanding and stimulates you so one is motivated and able to make a difference.
My goal is to ensure we continuously grow the skill sets of our current staff and help identify future needs.
