What leadership means to Rich:

"Effective leadership is centred on cultivating a very personal connection with other humans. It requires genuine empathy and trust as well as a willingness to 'own the risk' associated with your teams' endeavours. I believe that the phrase 'eyes-on, hands-off' neatly encapsulates the light-touch approach which can empower those around you to seize opportunities and innovate for success. I also consider leadership by personal example to be vital and believe that a leader should aspire to be the embodiment of the values and behaviours that they wish to see in their team."
