When I was 10, my teacher asked us to write up a sentence that made sense, but the sentence could only be made up of ten words, and each word could only have 2 letters. We tried and we tried and came up with nothing. My teacher then wrote on the board 'If it is to be, it is up to me'.
That day my teacher influenced a classroom full of children to think and behave differently, not just in that moment but for the rest of their lives. It was my first lesson in influence and leadership and I was hooked!
I have studied leadership all my life, have taught it at RMIT university, have worked as a leader in corporate Australia for many years and as a thought leader in my own business for over ten years.
