What inspires your leadership approach?

Simon Sinek and Steve Robbins have influenced my management style and leadership approach. I recently read a quote from Simon Sinek which said, “Protect people. Because in tough times, the numbers will never rush to save you.” This quote basically sums up my management philosophy. People first. I believe encourage and practice investing in the development and support of people. 

How would you define a Champion of Change?

I define a Champion of Change as anyone, at any level, who asks the hard questions and encourages companies and leadership teams to think differently and value other perspectives.
