Leadership & Life Chat - There’s no such thing as ‘self-made’

Mark loved explaining how Einstein wasn’t great at making sandwiches this week! He didn’t grow the wheat, didn’t knead the dough, so did he really make a sandwich? The point being none of us really ever make it on our own. We’re all reliant on so many factors around us that help guide, support and ultimately achieve our success.

They challenge the listener to think about whether they lean into their technical capabilities, as it’s easy to hide behind expertise, but to think about how many ‘soft-skills’ they could honestly claim to be expert in. Richard Branson can’t build a plane after all, he motivates, leads and inspires others to do it for him!
