Wow. Post #100.


5 years of tips and insights with one intention: to show that leading people is not as bad as you think.

How to make this post special then?

Any journey worth sharing — professional or not — is nothing but a story. A story marked by…

Do you remember the first time you worked from home?

The relief of not having to commute. The freedom of organising the day as you wish to. The pleasure of being home “early” and spending more time with your family.

If working from home became the norm in 2020, sadly…

I often refer to my mentors.

But only recently did it occur to me that I should explain what made such an impact on me. And the answer is easy: all knew how to adopt a servant leadership mindset.
