As I approach my 50th birthday in the year 2024, I find myself reflecting on my journey. The past few decades in the industry have granted me invaluable experiences, moulding me into the leader I am today. The year 2024, much like the ones before, has been a year of personal and professional growth.
Evolving as a Leader
Working with my team has been an enlightening experience. I am constantly learning from them and together we are evolving, becoming better with each passing day. Over the years, I have learned the importance of establishing processes and procedures that cater to the needs of my team. I believe in giving them the time and freedom to explore their own paths, and it’s a joy to see how they thrive in their own capacities.
The Power of Solidarity
The bond we share as a team is extraordinary. Our alliance is a testament to the power of communication and mutual expectations. Yes, sometimes these expectations might seem unrealistic, but it is awe-inspiring to see how the team always rises to the challenge. Our mantra, “near enough is not good enough”, pushes us to transcend the ordinary and aim for the extraordinary.
An Enriching Environment
The environment we foster plays a vital role in their growth. A creative space filled with positivity, lush views and accessible transportation facilities allows the team to flourish. It’s not just about what they can do for the company, but rather what I can do for them, and where I envision them being at the end of 2024.
A Year of Challenges and Triumphs
The year 2024 has been a year of challenges. The graphics team was tested in all areas, including pattern design and branding. Our marketing team grappled with understanding the intricacies of hospitality and landscape in Australia. But with every challenge came an opportunity to learn and grow, making us stronger and more resilient.
As I look forward, my focus is on pushing my team and myself to do even better. I akin it to a beautiful symphony where the rhythm of hard work blends perfectly with the melody of success. Here’s to an amazing year ahead!
