When was your lightbulb moment?

I have had many light bulb moments, but one was was a great reminder about trusting my skills, knowledge and experience. This light bulb moment came to me while swimming for my life in a near death sailboat accident.

What are your three words of advice?

1. Be a champion for others – when you get behind projects that matter, be a champion for your colleagues, and, support others in raising their dreams, when you need support there is a line up waiting to be a champion for you.

2. Learn to ask for help- while this may be uncomfortable, asking for help is a sign of strength, and a great starter for collaborations.

3. Give up the need to be perfect – instead, focus on excellence.

There will be bumpy times, messy conversations and challenging learning experiences – this is part of life and business. When you have your team of champions, you don’t have to go through these experiences alone.

Three words of advice...

Collaborate. Communicate. Be Kind!
