“It’s fascinating, fun and encourages you to think, re-assess and redress the balance; it all makes perfect sense. To understand your own needs is the first step in understanding the needs of others - knowing what makes us tick, but also recognising what makes us tick better. As a leader, this is a fundamental requirement... especially when the chips are down!”
