"You have to be self-aware. You need to manage your own emotions before you can manage the emotions of others and people around you."

"You’re not always right and you have to admit it. And I think that as well as a spirit of good leadership, you are open about it because if you want your team to be behind you, they need to understand it’s authentic how you are."

"What I learned in these 9 months is to listen very carefully and not have a ready made concept."
