How do you recharge at the end of the day?

Whether at the beginning, middle or end of the day, I find that exercise helps clear my mind and puts everything in perspective. It’s also good to burn off the working lunches and business dinners!

What is the best piece of advice you’ve ever heard?

Plato said, “Be kind. Everyone you meet is fighting a battle you know nothing about.” I find that this is useful advice for both interpersonal and business communications. It reminds me that we are all humans, and therefore complex creatures. It’s important to relate to people on an emotional level.

If you were to tell one person “thank you” for helping you become the person you are today, who would it be and why?

I suppose I’d thank my mother for helping me to become the person I am. Growing up, she gave me lots of freedom, but also was there if I needed anything. This allowed me to think and solve problems on my own but have someone to go to for advice and support when required. As it turns out, this type of structure is good advice for leadership in general.
