Who is a Leader?

 Blog  01 October 2022

Those whom others listen to are those who bring others with them.

Anyone can lead. But, it's often the ones who fail to heed the lesson of listening to others, doing what is right, despite pressure, time, expectation and cost who don't have others beside them.

In our experience, 20 years and 5000+ days offshore, we see the leaders of influence doing, 'not saying', the things that others expect of them - and hope to see in the people they look to for hope, direction & support.
