What drives you?
When I look at the world today and over time, I find more in common with the people who refused to listen, who rebelled, and who followed their visions – the people who chose to spark changes that shaped the world, rather than to sit back, getting up only to react. I want to identify the most meaningful fight I can, be best prepared to fight that fight, and then fight to the best of my abilities. Whether I win the fight is of secondary importance. I just want to give the best cause I find my absolute best.
What excites you the most about your job?
I believe greatly in the value of inspiration and creativity. There are only 24 hours in a day, and we have to sleep for a bit of that, which means we’re actually pretty limited in what we can physically do. The best you can hope for is to be a spark that gets other people to move and to do great things. The best leaders are defined by the extent to which they’ve been that spark, and helped other people find their true potential.
How do you personally try to help people realize that potential?
One of the things I value most is creativity. For me, creativity is the highest order human ability – it’s what allows one to look at the world, to see how things ought to be, and then make it so through their actions. I want to make my own way in the world, and create great new things. In turn, I do my best to ensure that those who I lead are empowered to formulate great new ways of doing things and to have an open mind. I also believe in humility. It is imperative not to forget how fortunate we are to be alive, and that whatever we have is merely a tool to best walk on the path ahead. As a leader, I will always ensure that the goals I follow will be higher than myself, targeting a greater purpose.
