  • Positive mindset is key. Understand your goals and drive towards your goals with a positive mindset.
  • Positive as well as persistent.  Keep striving towards your goals, even when you hear the word ‘no’.  If you do something that’s not correct then ask the right questions: so how do I do that?
  • You can’t do everything yourself, so hire smart. Your idea that starts as a seed can grow and flourish with the right people supporting you and contributing.
  • Set the stage: Let the team know your intentions for a meeting and what you are looking to achieve.  Prep new hires on what meetings are for and how they work.  Create safe spaces for your team to come together.
