60 Seconds with Nicole Hercus
Actually what I am is a lifelong learner. I am a 100% learning junkie. I’m an avid reader and I’m always updating my knowledge or doing courses. Right now I’m reading An Everyone Culture: Becoming a Deliberately Developmental Organization.
60 Seconds with Jane Counsel
I’m also incredibly proud of - and honoured - to be able to make a contribution to the USyd MBA program. I get to work with such talented current and future leaders.
60 Seconds with Theo Giannou
I’ve worked in both supportive and tough environments and have learnt from both! However I recall a supportive manager who challenged me early in my career, whilst providing a safe environment. “You take the risk. I’ll take the blame” was his favourite saying.
60 seconds with Andrew Tod
I was in my late ‘20’s - wide-eyed and absorbing everything around me. I learnt about dealing with people from different cultures, and about communicating where English was not the dominant language. I learnt a lot, and made lots of mistakes.
60 Seconds with Mark van den Boogaart
While I am an executive coach and executive leadership specialist, I have a real passion for ‘the customer and enjoy engaging with my clients and helping them on their own customer journey.
60 Seconds with James Harcourt
Variety excites me. I’m working with groups in PNG, individual executives, some strategy in Melbourne, and a leadership program with an engineering consultancy in Sydney.
I definitely wear a few hats! The CFO role gives me a different perspective, and I believe that anyone aspiring to organisational leadership roles should develop commercial acumen. After all, every decision in organisational life has a financial impact on something or someone.
I hear a lot of talk about good leadership, but in reality there’s often not a lot of attention to developing it. We need to walk the talk!
