What does being an impact leader mean to you?
Driving a positive impact in the world and leading with purpose. Being a leader of impact goes beyond taking care of those within your own company, it expands to caring for society at large and ensuring you uphold and promote the values ingrained in your company’s DNA. At Trusaic, we strive to advance social good in the workplace, to create a better working world for future generations.
What was your biggest leadership barrier and how did you over come it?
Driving social impact while maintaining profitability can be a huge barrier for leaders. To overcome this barrier, leaders must understand that purpose enables profit. Weaving purpose into the fabric of your organization is essential to being a successful leader and promotes growth alongside social good.
What does collaborative leadership look like?
Creating an environment without judgment and fostering inclusivity is the core of collaborative leadership. An environment without judgment allows individuals to feel safe to share their opinions openly, and in turn, fosters diversity of opinion. It’s only within this environment that productive collaboration can occur at all levels.
