What is your philosophy on leadership?
Strong leadership is about clearly communicating goals and mission
to people with different experiences and outlooks – resulting in them getting aligned and working together towards a common goal.
My personal leadership philosophy is that I work for my team. It is my job to understand their needs, provide guidance, and help them remove obstacles they may face so they can do their best work.
