I created an intentional team culture based on respect, motivation and fun. I watched my team develop and later on take leadership roles themselves. My decisions as a leader began to spread throughout the entire company and opened the door for more opportunities.
In my years at the company I was able to scale a 4-person team into a 25-person department.
And he also knew what it was going to take for me to unlock it. Turns out it was less about learning “management skills” and more about personal development. Because I started to notice that the more I worked on myself - really focusing on developing self-awareness and self-belief - the less I was stressing about what people thought of me and second-guessing my every decision. Instead I was able to show up with kindness, generosity and empathy… all of which naturally made me a better leader.
