Where has your passion for performance come from?

I was always fascinated with why people avoid asking simple but challenging questions, especially when that is often the most rewarding and productive exercise. I discovered more about myself as a person and colleague when my beliefs and opinions were challenged by others and how these simple questions can help us to improve our performance.

What gives organisations the winning edge?

I think the teams that grow and improve the most year on year are those with a culture of actively seeking out mistakes. Companies that embrace mistakes as positive learning opportunities and stop their colleagues fearing reprisal will always evolve and innovate faster than their competition. Such high performing teams also need to work hard to ensure each individual feels motivated with purpose and don’t forget the needs of the individuals among their collective goals.
