Enjoy the journey – one of my biggest lessons that I have learnt as a leader.
This video forms part of a series of Leadership Insights interviews which were recorded for the QMUL MSc/PGDip/PgCert in Dental Public Health, Policy and Leadership Course.
In this section of the interview, I was asked: “What have been the biggest lessons that you have learned as a leader?” Here is an extract from my response.
Remember that ‘failure is impossible if you stay on your path’ – be aware of what is important to you and keep on going; life rarely turn out exactly as we planned, but it is important to keep on persevering and remember to enjoy the journey.
If you would like to watch the full interview, it can be viewed here. The interview is split over three videos. In part one I talk about my leadership journey. Part two covers the traits which I think make someone a good leader, and in part three I summarise the biggest lessons that I have learned as a leader.
On 10th June 2021 I will be co-hosting an online event – Leadership in Healthcare & Emotional Resilience: Lessons from COVID-19. This event forms part of the MSc/PG Diploma in Dental Public Health, Policy and Leadership course, QMUL (http://qmul.ac.uk/dentpubhealthpl). A pre-event pack containing recorded presentations and further resources will be provided before the webinar. The event will be opened up to a limited number of external health sector delegates.
