Leadership is something that I am extremely passionate about... not only my leadership but the leadership of those around me. And when I talk about leadership, I’m talking about leading not only in business, but also leading in our own lives whether that be in your community, school, workplace or even your home. Leadership starts with self. We need to be leading in our own lives before we can lead anyone else. When asked about leadership I always start with what leadership is not - it is not about a title, power, level of authority, size of your office, carpark, the number of direct reports you have or the size of your pay packet.
